Tufts Biologists win "Project of the Year" from the Department of Defense's SERDP Resource Conservation Program, for 'Endangered Butterflies as a Model System for Managing Source-Sink Dynamics on Department of Defense Lands.' This project was led by Dr. Elizabeth Crone, with Norah Warchola, Lee Brown, and researchers from Duke University, Michigan State University, Washington State University, and the Institute of Wildlife Studies. The project demonstrated how habitat restoration, if carefully planned, enhances landscapes for endangered butterflies.

Michael Reed's groundbreaking studies featured
Professor Sara Lewis' first book, "Silent Sparks: The Wondrous World of Fireflies" was published by Princeton University Press. For centuries, the beauty of fireflies has evoked wonder and delight. Yet for most of us, fireflies remain shrouded in mystery: how do fireflies make their light? What are they saying with all that flashing? And what do fireflies seek in a mate? Written for a general audience, this beautifully illustrated book uncovers the science behind the spectacle, revealing remarkable stories of passionate romance, treachery, and deadly poisons among these stunning ambassadors for Earth's natural magic.
