The Caterpillar Lab – The Whole Story

The Caterpillar Lab The Whole Story

On April 6th, 2021, Sam Jaffe of The Caterpillar Lab delivered a deep picture into the world of native caterpillars using a combination of live presentation, digital microscope work, slides, and life history image plates. By exploring complex natural history stories involving caterpillars, their host plants, and their predators and parasitoids, the importance of biodiversity was once again revealed. This presentation went beyond the established narratives of bees and butterflies, and will hopefully help guide us further in our efforts to support and promote local biodiversity.
