Morphological and behavioural differences facilitate tropical butterfly persistence in variable environments

Cheng Wenda, Shuang Xing, Akihiro Nakamura & Timothy C. Bonebrake
1. The thermal biology of ectotherms largely determines their abundance and distributions. In general, tropical species inhabiting warm and stable thermal environments tend to have low tolerance to cold and variable environments, which may restrict their expansion into temperate climates. However, the distribution of some tropical species does extend into cooler areas such as tropical borders and high elevation tropical mountains. Behavioural and morphological differences may therefore play important roles in facilitating tropical species to...
