Butterflies in the park

Butterflies are a diverse group of insects containing around 20,000 species worldwide. About 700 of these species can be found in North America of which about 130 species have been recorded from Ohio and 80 species from Wayne County. Butterflies are generally popular since they are aesthetically pleasing and few species cause any damage to commercial plants. Butterflies contribute to thriving ecosystems and can indicate the state of an ecosystem's health. Butterfly abundance is often an indication of a healthy ecosystem. Butterflies also play an important role in pollinating flowers, particularly flowers that have a strong scent, are red or yellow in color and produce a large amount of nectar. Nectar is an important component of a butterfly's diet. Sadly, in recent years butterflies in many locations throughout the world have been declining in number due to the usual suspects of pesticide misuse, habitat destruction and a changing climate. There are some things we can do to help reverse this trend. One of those things is restoring habitat or at least replacing some of the lost flowers that are so important for butterfly survival.
