Flight metabolic rate and Pgi genotype influence butterfly dispersal rate in the field.
Dispersal is a key life-history trait, especially in species inhabiting fragmented landscapes. The process of dispersal is affected by a suite of morphological, physiological, and behavioral traits,Expand

Genotype by temperature interactions in the metabolic rate of the Glanville fritillary butterfly
SUMMARY Metabolic rate is a highly plastic trait. Here I examine factors that influence the metabolic rate of the Glanville fritillary butterfly (Melitaea cinxia) in pupae and resting and flyingExpand

Genetics of dispersal
Dispersal is a process of central importance for the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of populations and communities, because of its diverse consequences for gene flow and demography. It isExpand

A long life in the fast lane: positive association between peak metabolic rate and lifespan in a butterfly
SUMMARY High peak metabolic rates may provide a performance advantage, but it may also entail a physiological cost. A long-held assumption is that high mass-specific energy expenditure is associatedExpand

A Candidate Gene in an Ecological Model Species: Phosphoglucose Isomerase (Pgi) in the Glanville Fritillary Butterfly (Melitaea cinxia)
The Glanville fritillary butterfly inhabits fragmented landscapes in the Åland Islands, Finland, where the long-term persistence of this classic metapopulation depends on frequent re-colonisationExpand

Effects of flight and food stress on energetics, reproduction, and lifespan in the butterfly Melitaea cinxia
Environmental change can have drastic effects on natural populations. To successfully predict such effects, we need to understand how species that follow different life-history strategies respond toExpand
