what did richard ebright discover about the spots on a monarch butterfly pupa

Dear Student,

In the lesson 'The making of a scientist', Richard Ebright and another student of his school, built a device to show that the golden spots on the monarch butterfly pupa were producing a hormone which were necessary for the butterfly's full development. This project won him many awards. He was also able to find out the chemical structure of the hormone during his college years.
