Monitoring IUCN Red List Butterfly Species (Rhopalocera, Lepidoptera, Insecta) in the East Carpathians

A small grant has been made to support Serhiy Popov, an experienced researcher, in his work to survey red listed butterflies.  This is long term monitoring research which began in 1974. 

Within the framework of butterfly monitoring camps in the East Carpathians, Ukraine, Serhiy Popov will monitor European Threatened IUCN and Red List butterflies (Insecta, Lepidoptera, Rhopalocera).

I will go to proper butterfly monitoring camp for a week and record number of adults and their habitat quality and submit a short report.
