How does the gender of the monarch butterfly affect the wing lenghth?
The pupose of my experiment was to see if male wings are longer then female monarch wings. The procedures I used was holding the monarch gently with its wings closed and measuring it, then checking if it was a male or female. The data I got was that their wing lengths were about the same length (male: 55.8 female: 56.4). The conclusion is they have the ame average wing lenghth.
