If you are planning to work with us…
The success of our efforts at the Heliconius insectaries depends on the coordinated contributions of many people, hard work, and a clear understanding of the resources required by the projects which we support. We therefore make a few specific requests of any researchers who will visit us and share our facility:
- • Communicate early about your project’s timing and needs. It is very helpful to provide us with a written summary of your intended research plans. Specifically indicate what your needs will be regarding the quantity and species/races of butterflies, cages or other rearing facilities, and the time frame of your work at the insectaries. We will give you access to our Google Sites ‘intranet’ so you can easily share this information with others working at the insectaries. Please contact Owen McMillan .
- • Anticipate contributing to the greater effort. It takes many hands to maintain the stocks and resources supported by the insectaries. We request that visiting researchers arrive with a mind-set and intention to contribute towards the general maintenance and operation of the insectaries.
