WHC: Moths as a Performance Indicator: An Intro to Terrestrial Rapid BioAssessment
August 18, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EDT
Moths are largely nocturnal creatures, but they can shed light on local biodiversity in a unique way. Many of the world’s 160,000+ moth species have niche habitat needs. Knowing what species are present in an area (and which ones are conspicuously absent) can therefore tell us a lot about that habitat’s health.
In this webinar, Blaine Rothauser, a senior ecologist from GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. will share first-hand insights on how teams can translate moth inventories into meaningful baseline data about habitat value, while also helping us gain a new appreciation for moths’ beauty and diversity.
