Collateral Insight - Looking beyond the Moth

Today is the final day -- here is a new lab note talking about how far we have come. Please enjoy.

Collateral Insight - Looking beyond the Moth Aristotle said it best "The more you know, the more you know you don't know". As we have progressed in this study we have accelerated our learning. We have progressed from being casual observers with a sense of wonder in 2005 to be on the ground, involved and looking beyond the moth in 2015....

UPDATE:
We are nearly at 1,000.00 dollars in contributions and there are only 2 days left in our Experiment.com Crowd Funding Project and we have some big news!!!

An anonymous donor has come forward and offered to match Dollar for Dollar all new contributions to the site during the final days!!!!

Now every contribution counts for double and with this boost we have our best shot to hit our target - It is now well within our reach!

This is an unexpected opportunity to accomplish some amazing goals:

How has a Hemileuca moth evolved to live in a unique coastal Texas ecosystem?

Todays' update will focus on the scope of this research project. We are trying to complete our documentation of this moth's life cycle (Paper 1). We are also looking at the impact that it has on the ecosystem and how it survives in the coastal climate (Paper 2). It has been previously known from the Edwards Plateau (think Texas Hill Country around San Antonio and north) where everything is completely different - different trees, different soil, different weather, etc. Finally we need to figure out HOW & WHEN this moth got to Calhoun County. Was it once one long population that stretched from central Texas to the coast? Did some external factor (weather, mankind, etc.) transport one adult female from one site to start the other (Paper 3).
All of this is so worthy of study -- our habitat studies will help the managers of the property in Calhoun County to make decisions about how to manage the property. Help us finish these studies!

About the idea of Crowd Funding. The current state of affairs in science is pretty bleak, research money is so hard to come by. State and Government sources are increasingly challenged and much needed basic research goes by the wayside. Crowd Funding is the way that scientists can draw upon thousands of willing individuals to get their basic needs met. There are two equally important components.

1. Outreach - sharing these posts and talking about them is the easiest way to help - it brings new eyeballs to the site and that exposure generates opportunity. So please share this post - send links to your friends -- help us spread the word.

2. Participation - contributing is key. If we get a great response (see point 1) then even a a few dollars will make a huge difference. You see if 1000 people each backed us with 3.00 we would be at goal.

Thank you for your assistance and check in to morrow - we will be posting a new lab note.

East Texas Natural History Collection An exciting opportunity to help fund some important research

Today we are launching our Project at Experiment.com

Visit the Project: http://www.experiment.com/BuckMoth

We have been studying a population of magnificent black and white Buck Moths in Calhoun County since 2003 when they were first brought to our attention by 2 local naturalists - Brush Freeman and Petra Hockey. In October of 2014, we were thrilled to learn that The Powderhorn Ranch - a 17,351 acre tract of land in Calhoun County, Texas was acquired by The Nature Conservancy and Texas Parks and Wildlife. This property is an amazing and unique coastal oak habitat with grassy prairies, salt marshes and thousands of acres of low oak mottes.

The Nature Conservancy has recently granted us access to this property to continue our studies but we need your help to ensure that we have the necessary resources to complete what we have started.

How you can help:

1) Please visit our project and consider becoming a backer.
2) If you support this science please share it on Facebook, iNaturalist,
LinkedIn, Twitter and any other social media site.
3) We would love to have your endorsement.

We have 30 days from today to complete our fundraising and the key to our success is exposure so please spread the word.

We thank you so much for your time and look forward to your feedback!
