Regal Fritillary (Speyeria idalia)

Objectives:
Provide spatially explicit estimates of the current distribution and relative abundance patterns of the Regal Fritillary and its host plant, prairie violet at the FRMR and KPBS

Provide baseline population estimates of the Regal Fritillary within the FRMR

Provide models that identify habitat features and management practices that influence the density of adult regal fritillary within the FRMR

Provide models that identify habitat features and management practices that influence the occurrence of late instar larvae among discrete clusters of prairie violet within the FRMR and KPBS

Produce information products on the effectiveness of current and potential management strategies for the conservation of regal fritillary populations within the FRMR

Progress and Results:
The project was initiated April 2014.
