AREAS OF INTEREST
I am researching Lepidopteran feeding behavior by examining the proboscis at a structural and functional level. Specifically, I am investigating the proboscises of Monarchs (Danaus plexippus) which are primarily nectar feeders and Red-spotted Purples (Limenitis arthemis) which are primarily sap, rotting fruit and dung feeders to determine whether there are fluid uptake capabilities in multiple locations on the proboscis.
