    About This Project

    We are studying a population of moths in an unique oak ecosystem in a coastal barrier island environment to determine the relationship between the moth, its primary larval food plant, and the oak ecosystem it inhabits. This species, previously known only from Central Texas, has somehow evolved to live in a sand dominated coastal environment. Much of the known habitat will transition to Texas Parks & Wildlife management and our research will help in developing a sustainable land use plan.
