Scientific Bibliography : Index

The popular and scientific literature contains more than 3000 references to Monarch butterflies (L. P. Brower, pers com). This bibliography includes almost 1000 of the most important scientific papers published on this subject. The bibliography is organized by topics, but the topics are not mutually exclusive and many references appear in more than one place. Key words referring to major themes covered in the papers are given at the end of many of the references, these are intended to help you better identify the subjects discussed in the article. Although we have attempted to make this bibliography comprehensive, it is certainly not complete. If you are aware of important references which we've not listed, please send us your list and we will incorporate this information at a later date. These materials were compiled, organized and assembled by Chip Taylor, Sandra Perez and Kari Rogg.

The journals and books listed are available at most major universities, either at their libraries or through inter-library loan.
