The population structure, ecology and genetics of alpine and subalpine populations of Euphydryas anicia were investigated in Gunnison County, Colorado. Distances moved by individuals between recapture events at Cumberland Pass, elevation 3700 m, averaged less than 100 meters, but were greater than for most Euphydryas populations and other alpine Euphydryas populations in particular. Individuals often moved long distances, in patterns reminiscent of Euphydryas chalcedona populations and the more… CONTINUE READING
