Monthly Adult Butterfly Flight Capture Frequencies Search

You can search the database for flight or "on the wing" data on a Species, Genus or Common Name. Such data is useful in determining when peak activity times occur and can be used in a wide range of applications:

  • Conservation activities can be timed to have least impact on the adult and breeding populations
  • Niche Partitioning. That is, different species have different peak activity times to avoid overexploitation of food resources
  • Pollination Studies
  • Field work or nature studies can be timed to coincide with peak activity time. This would be extremely important if you were studies a particular species.
  • etc, etc

Beware, the broader your search terms, the slower the response time.
