About This Project
The Effects of Typhoons on the Diversity and Population Biology of Butterflies on Negros Island, Philippines
The purpose of this project is to provide new insights on the roles of typhoons in affecting the diversity and populations of butterflies in the country. The project will involve data collection and documentation of species loss and replacement between sites in a before and after typhoon analysis. Since this will be the first research project incorporating typhoons on animal populations, the data will be useful in long-term analysis and biological prediction in the Philippines.
