To Whom it may concern:

My name is Cody.  I live in Santa Barbara, CA.  Near
my home there is a Monarch Butterfly habitat.  This habitat is 
severly threatened as a housing project is planned.  I am in 
desprate need of information on the effects of wood smoke 
(from fire places in this case) on butterflies.  This issue is 
very time sensitive as the board is meeting next Wednesday 

ANY information on any types of butterflies and smoke would be
greatly appreciated.

Thank you,


To: cody From: Karen Wilkinson <> Subject: Re: URGENT: INFORMATION NEEDED Hi Cody, I forwarded your message to Karen Oberhauser at a local University here in Minnesota. Karen is an entomologist who studies the monarch. I know she spent time in CA this winter working with colonies there. I know development in general is a major threat to butterfly habitats, but she will be able to give you a better answer than I could about the smoke. Good Luck - I hope you are able to help protect the habitat. -karen
To: Karen Oberhauser <>, Elizabeth Goehring <>, From: Karen Wilkinson <> Subject: URGENT: INFORMATION NEEDED Karen and Liz, We got this message this morning and it is very specific- too specific for me to answer. I've done rather well on the "How long does a butterfly live?, How far do they fly in one day?" etc.... I thought you two might be able to help more than we could on this one. I wouldn't be surprised if that info isn't online somewhere - I just don't know where. Thanks in advance, -karen
