Senior Ecologist
Oak Woodland Restoration
I am conducting a moth inventory of a 100 acre oak woodland at the Chicago Botanic Garden that I have been restoring since 1989. Besides the total inventory I am also doing a comparison between restored (increase native plant diversity, reduced exotic invasive species, and introduced control burning) and un-restored woodland to see what affect the restoration has on the moth population. I am particularly interested in micromoths.
