    About This Project

    Climate change will dramatically alter the planet’s
    biodiversity, yet we know little about how most species will be impacted.

    This summer we launched a citizen science project that partners with the public to help collect a invasive butterfly–the cabbage white–from across the world to study how the environment affects the traits and genes of this butterfly.

    This research will improve our ability to predict how species respond to climate change.
    Blast off!
