Costs of dispersal
Dispersal costs can be classified into energetic, time, risk and opportunity costs and may be levied directly or deferred during departure, transfer and settlement. They may equally be incurredExpand

A candidate locus for variation in dispersal rate in a butterfly metapopulation
Frequent extinctions of local populations in metapopulations create opportunities for migrant females to establish new populations. In a metapopulation of the Glanville fritillary butterfly (MelitaeaExpand

Dispersal-related life-history trade-offs in a butterfly metapopulation.
1. Recent studies on butterflies have documented apparent evolutionary changes in dispersal rate in response to climate change and habitat change. These studies often assume a trade-off betweenExpand

Heritability of dispersal rate and other life history traits in the Glanville fritillary butterfly
Knowing the variances and heritabilities (h2) of life history traits in populations living under natural conditions is necessary for a mechanistic understanding of respective evolutionary processes.Expand

Life‐history, genotypic, and environmental correlates of clutch size in the Glanville fritillary butterfly
Abstract 1. Glanville fritillary butterfly (Melitaea cinxia) females lay up to 10 clutches of 50–300 eggs in their lifetime. Clutch size is an important life‐history trait as larval group sizeExpand

Genotypic and Environmental Effects on Flight Activity and Oviposition in the Glanville Fritillary Butterfly
Adverse environmental conditions constrain active flight and thereby limit reproduction in most insects. Butterflies have evolved various adaptations in order to thermoregulate, allowing females toExpand

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

Predictive Adaptive Responses: Condition‐Dependent Impact of Adult Nutrition and Flight in the Tropical Butterfly Bicyclus anynana
The experience of environmental stress during development can substantially affect an organism’s life history. These effects are often mainly negative, but a growing number of studies suggest thatExpand

Mobility and lifetime fecundity in new versus old populations of the Glanville fritillary butterfly
Life history theory often assumes a trade-off between dispersal and reproduction, and such a trade-off is commonly observed in wing-dimorphic insects. The results are less consistent forExpand

Dispersal and species’ responses to climate change
Dispersal is fundamental in determining biodiversity responses to rapid climate change, but recently acquired ecological and evolutionary knowledge is seldom accounted for in either predictiveExpand
