Ben Goldfarb’s new book is  Crossings, How Road Ecology is Shaping the Ecology of our Planet. He has tackled a difficult and huge topic and delved into the not so obvious aspects of how our highways impact the world we and our fellow creatures live in. 

Today, I read from Chapter 7 –  Life on the Verge, Will the highway’s novel ecosystem save America’s most beloved butterfly or obliterate it? Perhaps  you may be as surprised as I am to hear what he has to say about the positive effects a highway running in the right direction can have on the monarch butterfly.
