Beautiful Science

A study led by Assoc Prof Antonia Monteiro from the Dept of Biological Sciences at NUS Faculty of Science has revealed that toxic chemicals in haze can affect the survival and development of butterflies. These findings provide insight into the adverse effects of haze smoke on insects; and as butterflies are easy to identify and monitor, they could be used as bioindicators of the health of an ecosystem for better haze management.
