Monarch update Spring 2018
Just posting randomly from my newsletter, which I can't link to.
Of minor interest, the old program has merged with a couple others that are taking a more focused approach to the research. "randomly selected" grids for monitoring to get a sample size.
The good: There appears to be a very deliberate attempt to evenly distribute the grid across the country.
The bad: It appears to have a very high bias towards areas near universities and existing wildlife refuges (at least in Utah) (though there are a very few that are rather remote)
I've never seen the north/south split in the eastern monarchs before, as shown on the map. No rationale presented why they delineate those.
