Effects of Typhoons on the Diversity and Population Biology of Butterflies on Negros Island, Philippines
The direct and indirect effects of typhoons on the biodiversity of the Philippines are still unknown, and the country is experiencing 20 typhoons annually. My research aims to understand its effect on the diversity and population biology of butterflies on Negros Island, Philippines. Butterflies play a significant role in the typical terrestrial ecosystem as agents of pollination, larval, pupal, and adult food sources for insectivorous birds and lizards.
