Butterflies are sacred pollinators that maintain thin red line of life. They keep balance, they make plants and trees thrive.
So how butterflies are classified?
Entomology is the branch of zoology that study insects. Right now this field is on fire with the rapid advances of genetics, CRISPR, and the rise of science, scientific literature and tools for laboratory.
Meet one of the top 5 most beautiful and hard workers, and adventurer’s pollinator of North America. Yes beautiful and shining butterflies!
Butterflies are essential in maintaining ecosystems as pollinators they keep alive and flourishing a lot of species of plants that sustain a lot of herbivorous animals that relies on vegetables to keep living and to serve sometimes as food for carnivorous animals.
