A Field Guide to Western Butterflies

  author={P. Opler},
Winter warming facilitates range expansion: cold tolerance of the butterfly Atalopedes campestris
Characteristics of this species that seem to be associated with its rapid response are that it is an opportunistic species, it is not habitat or dispersal limited, and it is constrained by Tmin, which may be especially responsive to global warming. Expand
Scientific names list for butterfly species of North America, north of Mexico
Effects of Scarification, Phytohormones, Soil Type, and Warming on the Germination and/or Seedling Performance of Three Tamaulipan Thornscrub Forest Species
The Tamaulipan thornforests of south Texas and northeast Mexico are an ecologically and economically important conservation hotspot. Thornforest restoration is limited by native tree and shrubExpand
Genomic Data Support the Elevation of the Federally Listed El Segundo Blue (Euphilotes bernardino/Battoides allyni) to Species Status
The El Segundo Blue, Euphilotes battoides allyni (also listed as Euphilotes bernardino allyni), was described in the genus Shijimiaeoides as part of the battoides species group by Shields (1975).Expand
Genomics confirms surprising ecological divergence and isolation in an endangered butterfly
Habit and host specialization did not elicit genetic isolation in neighboring populations suggesting that: (1) other phenomena are needed to explain the remarkable and idiosyncratic divergence of these highly restricted, proximate, taxa, and (2) fine-scale genomic markers suggest broader implications for understanding the mechanisms of speciation and reinvestigation of phylogeographic patterns in regions like the California Floristic Province.

Matching expert range maps with species distribution model predictions
A quantitative metric (expert score) was developed to evaluate the agreement between an expert map and a habitat probability surface obtained from a species distribution model and found that expert maps drawn with more detail are more likely to agree with species distribution models and thus minimize both commission and omission errors.

Prevalence of monarch (Danaus plexippus) and queen (Danaus gilippus) butterflies in West Texas during the fall of 2018
This is the first study to correct for the presence of queens when calculating the density of monarch eggs, and provides insight into monarch utilization of less well-known regions, such as West Texas, and highlights the need to expand the scope of monarch monitoring and conservation initiatives.

Phylogenomic Analyses Clarify True Species within the Butterfly Genus Speyeria despite Evidence of a Recent Adaptive Radiation
To achieve phylogenetic resolution of the genus, phylogenomic and population genomic analyses of all currently recognized North American Speyeria species, as well as several subspecies, using restriction-site-associated DNA sequencing (RADseq) confirm the 16 canonical species, and clarify many internal relationships.

A Naturalist's Guide to the Great Plains
This book documents nearly 500 US and Canadian locations where wildlife refuges, nature preserves, and similar properties protect natural sites that lie within the North American Great Plains, fromExpand
