    William and Mary researchers study milkweed to help save monarch butterfly

    This caught my attention as I've always been fond of monarchs.
    To help stem the monarch's rapid slide toward extinction and possibly even reverse it, two biologists at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg embarked this year on a project to sequence the DNA of milkweed plants in hopes that boosting monarch habitat will help the butterfly rebound.
