Dragonfly Migration Tracked With Tiny Radio Tags

Dragonflies fitted with tiny radio transmitters may aid scientists’ efforts to track where the insects buzz off to on their southward migrations. The results should shed light on this little-studied behavior, according to the project leaders.

“We don’t know where they go or, to be honest, why they do it,” said Michael May, a dragonfly expert at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
