I'm implementing a threaded solution for the first time.  I have a function declared in my form class called Begin_Monitoring(string name, int interval).  
There is a button that starts this process and I've included the following code in my click event:

      private void btnBeginMonitoring_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
                        // Start a separate thread to perform the computer's move.
                        this.EnvironmentalMonitorThread = new Thread(new ThreadStart(this.Begin_Monitoring("Environment",30)));
                        this.EnvironmentalMonitorThread.IsBackground = true;
                        this.EnvironmentalMonitorThread.Priority = System.Threading.ThreadPriority.Lowest;
                        this.EnvironmentalMonitorThread.Name = "Environmental Monitor";

When I try to compile it, I get a "Method Name Expected" error and it highlights "this.Begin_Monitoring("Environment",30)"   Why doesn't it consider Begin_Monitoring to be a method?  Or rather, how do I solve this?  

It's urgent, hence the points.
