Butterfly seed predation: effects of landscape characteristics, plant ploidy level and population structure

  title={Butterfly seed predation: effects of landscape characteristics, plant ploidy level and population structure},
  author={Leena Arvanitis and Christer Wiklund and Johan Ehrl{\'e}n},
Polyploidization has been suggested as one of the most common mechanisms for plant diversification. It is often associated with changes in several morphological, phenological and ecological plant traits, and therefore has the potential to alter insect–plant interactions. Nevertheless, studies evaluating the effect of plant polyploidy on interspecific interactions are still few. We investigated pre-dispersal seed predation by the butterfly Anthocharis cardamines in 195 populations of two ploidy… CONTINUE READING
