Kelsey Fisher

Kelsey is studying the movement ecology of the larval and adult stages of monarch butterflies. With the help of automated radio telemetry, she can analyze the flight patterns as well as perceptual range of the butterfly to see how future habitat plantings could be made more suitable. She is also utilizing the mitochondrial DNA of females to determine if it can be used to show female dispersal as well as population diversity.
