Butterfly Evolutionary Diversity


BED Logo 2016.08.06

The Butterfly Evolutionary Diversity (BED) project is a three-year project between the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) and LepSoc. The BED project seeks to map patterns of evolutionary diversity for butterflies across South African landscapes. This is an exciting research project and aims to identify areas not only of high butterfly species richness and conservation concern, but also areas of high evolutionary importance.
