Few relevant data are available to analyze how landscape structure and composition affect the abundance and movement patterns of tropical insects. Using mark-release recapture experiments we examine the effect of an agro-pasture matrix on changes in diversity and migration of frugivorous butterflies in a tropical fragmented landscape in southern Mexico. In total, 53 frugivorous butterfly species were recorded in the entire landscape. Butterfly species composition was much more similar between… CONTINUE READING
