PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Conservation Genetics of the Lord Howe Island Stick Insect

The Lord Howe Island Stick Insect, ­ thought to be extinct but recently rediscovered, has become emblematic of the dangers faced by island species in the face of anthropogenic change. A planned reintroduction effort aims to rescue this species, one of the rarest insects in the world, from the brink of extinction.
