#295: The Monarch Butterfly, Its Migratory Path & Process, Their Food Source & Coevolution with Expert Dr. Anurag Agrawal



In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#295: The Monarch Butterfly, Its Migratory Path & Process, Their Food Source & Coevolution with Expert Dr. Anurag Agrawal In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with Dr. Anurag Agrawal, Professor of Ecology, Entomology, and Evolution at Cornell University about his scientific findings of Monarch butterflies from over 20 years of research.

Dr. Agrawal will teach us the coevolution battle between monarchs and their milkweed, differentiating between the various milkweed species and the natural history and biology of the monarch from caterpillar stage to becoming a butterfly.

From there, Dr. Agrawal will tell us about the monarch's migratory process, what triggers the start of that migration from either direction, and the fascinating, scientific fact of the multi generational migration process of the monarch.

This and so much more on this week's episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!
