Local adaptation in thermal tolerance for a tropical butterfly across ecotone and rainforest habitats

Michel AK Dongmo, Rachid Hanna, Thomas B Smith, KKM Fiaboe, Abraham Fomena & Timothy C Bonebrake
Thermal adaptation to habitat variability can determine species vulnerability to environmental change. For example, physiological tolerance to naturally low thermal variation in tropical forests species may alter their vulnerability to climate change impacts, compared with open habitat species. However, the extent to which habitat-specific differences in tolerance derive from within-generation versus across-generation ecological or evolutionary processes are not well characterized. Here we studied thermal tolerance limits of a Central African butterfly (Bicyclus dorothea) across two...
