How to Avoid Being Eaten the Butterfly Way: Mimicry, Camouflage, and Warnings
with Alison Center

Recently a Swiss company started marketing a burger made from mealworms, because insects are full of proteins and fats. Although eating insects might be a hard sell to humans, the rest of the animal kingdom are delighted to eat them. So, what strategies do butterflies use to avoid this fate? Come hear about toxins and deceptions and see their disguises.

Alison Center has worked as a biologist for the Bureau of Land Management and U. S. Forest Service and volunteers on the Coast Fork Willamette watershed council's technical team. She is presently working as the editorial assistant for BioProcess International magazine and is the president of the Oregon chapter of the North American Butterfly Association (NABA) based in Eugene.
