Current Project Participants
During the past 8 years we've sent sampling kits to over 500 prospective volunteers. For 2006-2013 combined, a total of 318 volunteers submitted samples to our lab for analysis, and their locations which span 28 US states and two Canadian provinces. The diferent colored symbols indicate the number of years a volunteer has sampled monarchs. Special thanks to our 7 volunteers who have sampled all 8 years: Richard Breen, Sondra & Blaize Cabell, Sharon Duerkop, Ilse Gebhard, Cathy Leece, Bruce Parker, and Sharon McCullough.
