AbstractDescribes the results of a mark-recapture study of monarch butterflies on their spring migration in a pasture in north-central Florida. The pasture had an abundant population of Asclepias humistrata. Monarch butterflies seem to exploit the newly available populations of milkweeds as spring advances northward.
