  • Abstract Using host plant quality as a diapause-inducing stimulus may be adaptive for herbivorous insects that use host plants whose phenology is unpredictable based on photoperiod or temperature. We examined the effects of leaf toughness of the woody vine Aristolochia kaempferi Willd. on larval performance and pupal diapause induction of the swallowtail butterfly Byasa alcinous Klug (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae). We also conducted field observations to assess whether human disturbance affects… CONTINUE READING
