  • 2015 artist/scientist collaboration: Are there caterpillars on butterfly wings? News of the Lepidopterist's Society Winter, 2015, Vol. 57(4), pp.182-193. Darryl Wheye (SA-N CEO) and Paul R. Ehrlich, (SA-N founding board member, 2009-2011) ask if the apparent resemblances between some butterfly larvae and elements on the wings of adults are coincidental or adaptive and call for a citizen science program to create a databse of resemblances.

  • 2014 co-sponsored project: Art at Exits: Seeing Stanford Species. The exhibit--and its web coverage--include 10 works by John James Audubon featuring birds found on Stanford's main campus. The Audubons are placed near building exits opening toward areas the featured birds frequent. Science Art captions provide a science lens.
