DLIA Discovery Of Punk Rock Caterpillar, Turns Out To Be Rare Species

Punk Caterpillar

At the request of the park, DLIA has formed  Tree Teams of citizen scientists to sample threatened forest types, in order to discover what species of invertebrates may also be lost  as these forests  continue to decline.   DLIA is a pioneer in using comprehensive approaches to biodiversity sampling, but some tree stand types have not had this sampling. The high elevation American beech tree stands are the first forest type to be sampled by DLIA using a newly developed multi-collection method.

Support Biodiversity by Donating Today!

DLIA is funded entirely by donations and grants. Your support today will help keep discovery alive.
