Mike, before these studies anyone who would have suggested that 
the ultra intense crop and roadside monocultures found
in the midwest USA
could be good monarch butterfly breeding
habitats would have been considered brain dead.

Likewise, alot of people think I am brain dead for suggesting
good monarch butterfly overwintering habitats can
exist in ultra urbanized settings such as the following:
This San Francisco Bay Area overwintering site, by the way, hold

overwintering monarchs.
