Butterfly ecology on camera

Two of our colleagues, Gary Powney and Dr Tom Oliver, have created a short video explaining the background behind their work on assessing functional connectivity of the landscape which was recently published in the journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution.


In the study Tom, Gary and colleagues used long-term monitoring data on the Speckled Wood butterfly (Pararge aegeria) from the UK  Butterfly Monitoring Scheme, jointly run by CEH and Butterfly Conservation.

We think this is a great way to get across an important scientific topic! And, as well as some great science, the video includes a catchy end song composed and sung by Tom called 'Butterfly Blues'. Listen out for the ecological references!
