Scientific Studies Supporting Pollinator Pathways
As monarch butterflies make their transcontinental migration this month across North America, they will depend on milkweed plants to produce the next generation of this iconic butterfly species, which has seen declines of more than 80% in its eastern population and 99% in its western population.
However, a new University of Florida study suggests that adding other flowering plants to the mix may help monarchs more than milkweed alone.
The study found that monarch butterflies laid 22% more eggs on milkweed in plots with a mix of milkweed and other flowering plants than they did in plots with a single milkweed species.
