Growth Strategies and Optimal Body Size in Temperate Pararginii Butterflies1

Abstract

SYNOPSIS. In temperate insects the evolution of growth strategies and the optimal age and size at maturity will depend strongly on seasonal variation in temperature and other resources. However, compared to photoperiod, temperature itself is a relatively poor predictor of seasonal change and timing decisions in insects are often most strongly influenced by… (More)
