Due to the increasing effects of climate change, studies focusing on bioindicator species are becoming more necessary than ever. Additionally, knowledge about global biodiversity can be very useful to conservation organizations because it helps them determine what areas need to be conserved the most .Butterflies are useful as bioindicators due to their complex life cycles, importance in the food chain, and sensitivity to environmental changes. This project focused on studying the overall…

TLDR
Despite the protected status of Dadia NP and the subsequent stability of land use regimes, a marked change in butterfly community composition is found over a 13 year period, concomitant with an increase of annual average temperature of 0.95°C.
