Transcript: How Do They Do It? Medicinal Plants Do Monarchs Rely on Human Activity for Survival? Incredible Research Findings Are There any Question So Far? The evolutionary biologist Jaap de Roode asserts that: "We have shown that some species of milkweed, the larva's food plants, can reduce parasite infection in the monarchs," What Are Medicinal Plants??? Other Uses For Medicinal Plants Are There Any Questions? Researchers from Emory University in Atlanta have observed and documented the ways in which the Monarch Butterfly use medicinal plants to treat disease in their offspring. Treat diseases in the human body Antibacterial Antidote Treats Asthma What is a Monarch Butterfly? Current Threat To The Monarch Butterfly Many researchers have looked into the ways in which various animal species respond to the threat of disease. Current research seems to support the idea that animals take an active role in treating disease both in themselves and their offspring. What Did They Find? Monarch butterflies are easy to distinguish from other butterflies due to the unique orange, black and white designs on their wings. The monarch butterfly is arguably the most well known species of butterfly in North America. They are renowned for their incredible beauty and their unique ability to ward off predators. Their scientific name is Danaus plexippus. It is a milkweed butterfly in the Nymphalidae family. The Nymphalidae is the largest family of butterflies with about 6,000 species found all throughout the world. With this incredible defense mechanism, how can they possibly be threatened? Thank You for Listening The Monarch Response!!! Monarchs are poisonous due to the fact that when they are caterpillars they feed on milkweed plants which contain “high levels of phytochemicals called cardenolides” These chemicals do not hurt caterpillars, but they do make them toxic even after they become butterflies, if they are consumed by other creatures. According to de Roode, when a female butterfly is infected, they will seek out and lay their eggs on a specific type of milkweed that will help ward off sickness in their offspring. This seems to suggest that monarchs have evolved by adopting practices to treat/ medicate their offspring. The observation of this phenomenon indicates that similar to humans, animal species also use medicinal plants as a form of medical treatment. Scientific Discovery Can Animals Fight Off Diseases? Parasites frequently invade the guts of caterpillars and remain with them even after they have transformed into monarch butterflies. As a result, infected female monarchs pass on these parasites to their offspring, which can cause a deadly parasitic infection. Medicinal Plants are plants that provide humans and even animals with medicine.
