The insect research team worked hard this year to observe a tiny parasite: it's a chalcidoid wasp, less than 2 mm long, and it's larvae feed on the also-tiny aspen leaf miner. Read about the natural history of these wasps in this field note.

About MPG North
Established in 2005, the property boundary at MPG North encloses 200 undeveloped acres in Western Montana’s Swan Valley. Researchers and field staff manage the property to improve habitat quality for wildlife, discover new ways to restore damaged landscapes and study forest ecology. We also create opportunities to share what we've learned with local conservation organizations, students of all ages, management agencies and volunteers. Through these education and outreach efforts, we seek to inspire others to work together and protect undeveloped landscapes.
