Learn how to construct a butterfly habitat using inexpensive materials, obtain larvae, and feed and care for butterflies. Originally designed to house painted lady butterflies for the Earth-based portion of the Butterflies in Space project, the habitat also may be used to study the life cycle of other species of butterflies.
Developed and conducted in collaboration with BioServe Space Technologies of the University of Colorado, and the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
This work was supported by National Space Biomedical Research Institute through NASA cooperative agreement NCC 9-58.
