Just dawned on me that I failed to post about a new monarch study that was published in the June 22nd edition of Science. Main point found by the research is summer population number does not jive with overwintering population number. Counts show plenty of monarchs in the summer but too many migrating ones aren't making it to Mexico. The trip south is getting tougher for reasons known and unknown.

Back when I learned about the study, a PDF of the study was downloadable from Science website. I just checked and the only thing free now is the summary. I screwed up and I'm sorry. OTOH, Science is a magazine most libraries carry so it is something you can get your hands on.
