Abstract: Only 1% of British Columbia’s original Garry oak habitat now remains, and many of those trees are considered “the living dead”—they have no offspring under them, just lawns and tulips or big, fat cows. The subspecies of the large marble butterfly, Euchloe ausonides, is now extinct. It enjoyed Garry oak habitat during its presence on Earth. It’s toast. Nine subspecies localized to this habitat are now considered extinct, endangered, vulnerable, or just plain “up the creek.” Why? Well, with only 1% of the original oaks remaining (if you don’t count all the pet ones, like those in Victoria that majestically grace a lawn, or the perfect mushroom-shaped beauties that dot the cow fields like sentries), the wild stock can be measured in a fraction of a percent.
