February Meeting - Butterflies' Responses to Fire in the Top End

Wednesday Feb 12 7:00 pm

Duration: 1.5 hours


Butterflies contribute to the earth’s biodiversity, and their beauty and natural histories have captivated the human imagination for millennia through cultural traditions and scientific discoveries. We know a lot – but there is still much to be learned! Join Julia to discover more about what we know and what questions are still to be asked about butterfly natural history and responses to fire in the Top End. Julia will share insights from her butterfly research at Territory Wildlife Park, exploring butterfly resource use under different fire regimes in tropical savanna.

About the presenter: Julia is a PhD student and National Science Foundation Fellow from the University of Minnesota, USA. She is living in the Territory for the year to conduct research at the Wildlife Park as part of her dissertation on butterfly responses to fire.

This FREE event is organised by the NT Field Naturalists' Club and is open to members of the public. We hope to see you there.
