MJV: Monarch Butterfly Reproduction: from physiology to behavior
May 25, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Reproduction is a fascinating facet in the life an insect with more than its share of fascinating features. Monarch scientists Karen Oberhauser and Michelle Solensky will share their research on the ins and outs of monarch reproduction, from mating behavior to spermatophores and sperm competition. Learn how they’ve counted monarch sperm (both kinds!), distinguished female rejection postures, and measured who wins in the inner battles among sperm. You just might come away from this talk thinking that monarch reproduction is just as fascinating as monarch migration!
