Temperate butterflies of 44 species were examined to determine if their mating system (perching and patrolling) affected flight design, and only male design was explained by the mating system.
Absence of Trade‐Offs Between Sexual Size Dimorphism and Early Male Emergence in a Butterfly
Results indicate that protandry is selected for per se through sexual selection in seasonal environ- ments, and similar female-biased size dimorphism occurred in protandrous and non-protan- drous populations alike, and hence sexual sizeDimorphism in P. aegeria is not a result of selection for prot andry, nor the causal factor behind protAndry.
Seasonal plasticity in growth and development of the speckled wood butterfly, Pararge aegeria (Satyrinae)
Plasticity was found for important life-history traits- generation time, growth rate and final weight and seasonal regulation of development in response to photoperiod was found to occur at two levels, suggesting that the two level diapause may not be fundamentally different.
The practical epistemologies of the classroom: A study of laboratory work
The practical epistemologies of university students during laboratory work in chemistry are analyzed to enhance understanding of how teaching practices interact with learners. The purpose is to

The Roles of Aesthetic Experience in Elementary School Science
The role of aesthetic experiences for learning was examined in elementary school science. Numerous authors have argued for a science education also involving aesthetic experiences, but few have
Conflicts of interest: an indispensable element of education for sustainable development
A central concept introduced in the Nordic debate on sustainable development is ‘action competence’. The concept has been defined as a competence of learners, i.e. the ability to take into
