Everyone loves butterflies, understandably - but did you know that the number of moth species outnumbers that of butterflies by 15 to 1?  Moth caterpillars have greatly influenced the defensive chemicals that can be found in plants, many of which have been studied and used by humans.
This class will explore the fascinating world of moths and the many important roles they play in nature, including that of herbivores, detritivores and as food for other predators.
