Strong negative effects of simulated heat waves in a tropical butterfly
Climate change poses a significant challenge to all natural systems on Earth. Especially increases in extreme weather events such as heat waves have the potential to strongly affect biodiversity,Expand

Reproduction alters oxidative status when it is traded‐off against longevity
Oxidative stress has been proposed to mediate one of the most important aspects of life‐history evolution: the trade‐off between reproduction and self‐maintenance. However, empirical studies haveExpand

Nutritional stress reduces flight performance and exploratory behavior in a butterfly
Anthropogenic global change, including agricultural intensification and climate change, poses a substantial challenge to many herbivores due to a reduced availability of feeding resources. TheExpand

Successful despite poor flight performance: range expansion is associated with enhanced exploratory behaviour and fast development
Anthropogenic interference forces species to respond to changing environmental conditions. One possible response is dispersal and concomitant range shifts, allowing individuals to escape unfavourableExpand

Sexual differences rather than flight performance underlie movement and exploration in a tropical butterfly
1. Individual movement behaviour governs several routine processes, and may scale up to important ecological processes, including dispersal. However, movement is affected by a wealth of factors,Expand

Movement Patterns Differ between Sexes and Depend on Weather Conditions in the Butterfly Lycaena tityrus
Habitat loss and anthropogenic climate change are important threats to biodiversity conservation. Owing to the concomitantly deteriorating habitat quality, individuals are often forced to disperse toExpand

Factors affecting dispersal in a butterfly - A comparison between core and edge populations
In the current era of anthropogenic climate change is the long-term survival of all organisms dependent on their ability to respond to changing environmental conditions either by (1) phenotypicExpand
Characterisation of polymorphic microsatellite loci in three copper butterfly species (Lycaena spp.)
The genus Lycaena is widely used for studying life history evolution, local adaptation, stress biology, and behavior. Furthermore, several species are currently declining and thus of conservationExpand
Sexual differences in the morphology and movement of a butterfly: Good shape does not make good dispersers
Movements are involved in several routine processes and may scale up to important ecological processes such as dispersal. However, movement is affected by a wealth of factors including flightExpand
