This is a continuation of a Challenge Cost-Share funded project on the behavioral, and population-level, response of Fender's blue butterfly to large scale habitat restoration in critical habitat areas. Continued monitoring must be conducted to understand the biology of Fender's blue butterfly in order to enhance recovery efforts for this endangered butterfly. Results of this work will apply specifically to sites in the Eugene, Oregon area, as well as broadly across the range of the species. In addition, the findings from this study are anticipated to provide increased information on other butterfly recovery efforts across the United States.
