The Monarch Lab website was developed by educators and scientists at the University of Minnesota to present information about monarch butterfly biology and research and to provide students, scientists, and teachers with an interactive forum for discussing monarchs. The site includes informative sections that introduce a variety of monarch research topics such as Growth & Development, Monarch Migration, Natural Enemies, Reproductive Biology, and more. The website shares great reports from studies conducted by Student/Teacher/Scientist teams around the United States. The site's Monarch Rearing section includes concise instructions for catching and rearing monarchs, making a cage, and even finding and growing milkweed. The site also offers information about the life cycle and distribution of monarchs; a Monarch Basic Biology Quiz with three difficulty levels; monarch research lesson plans for grades K-12; and information about entering a project in the Insect Fair.
