The Lepidoptera Research Foundation was established in 1962 to encourage scholastic research on butterflies and moths. The initial objective was publishing The Journal of Research on the Lepidoptera - JRL. If you wish to submit a manuscript, please consult our Instructions to authors. Our concerns have since grown to provide broad outreach by recognizing Lepidoptera as excellent models of keystone and charismatic species for biological research, especially in conserving habitats. Habitats, once destroyed, can never be completely restored.
