New Research Paper–Butterfly Communities and Habitats!

We are excited to share a paper that was published in the Journal of Applied Ecology from research conducted in our FARMS for Biodiversity Project! The paper, published this past June 2023, includes several of our SFHC’s collaborators, and we are so happy to share the wonderful work of our team!

This paper focuses examined whether habitat type (whether woodland vs. farmland) affects butterfly community abundance, species richness, and species assmblages. The abstract can be found on the  Recent Publications page. You can also reach out to our research collaborator, Rachel Bezner Kerr (, for a PDF copy of these papers!
