Monarch Butterfly Migration Plunges - Extreme Weather, GMO Crops and Pesticides

Monarch Butterfly Migration Plunges - Extreme Weather, GMO Crops and Pesticides | Plant Based Transitions | Scoop.it

March 13, 2013 - New York Times

The monarch migration population to their winter home in a Mexican forest sank this year to a 59 percent decline ince December 2011 due to extreme weather and a lack of the milkweed that the butterflies feed on, experts say.

 

But an equally alarming source of the decline  is the explosive increase in American farmland planted in soybean and corn genetically modified to tolerate herbicides.

The American Midwest’s corn belt is a critical feeding ground for monarchs, which once found a ready source of milkweed growing between the rows of millions of acres of soybean and corn. But the ubiquitous use of herbicide-tolerant crops has enabled farmers to wipe out the milkweed, and with it much of the butterflies’ food supply.

“That habitat is virtually gone. We’ve lost well over 120 million acres, and probably closer to 150 million acres,” Mr. Taylor said.

A rapid expansion of farmland — more than 25 million new acres in the United States since 2007 — has eaten away grasslands and conservation reserves that supplied the monarchs with milkweed" ...  http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/14/science/earth/monarch-migration-plunges-to-lowest-level-in-decades.html?smid=tw-nytnational&seid=auto
