I was wondering if anyone was aware of images taken of a cocoon at
various stages in its development. I have access to an MRI microscope
capable of at least 50 micron resolution in insects. I was hoping to
image a cocoon and track the transformation into a butterfly
non-invasively, that is if it is a novel project.
If this is of interest, does anyone know of an entomologist who may
know of some scientific questions which may be answered by such a
study? Anyone interested?
