The changing status of the Chalkhill Blue butterfly Polyommatus coridon in the UK: the impacts of conservation policies and environmental factors
The Chalkhill Blue Polyommatus coridon is a widespread butterfly of lowland calcareous grassland in southern Britain and is considered a good indicator of habitat condition. Polyommatus coridon hasExpand
Determining the long-term habitat preferences of the Duke of Burgundy butterfly, Hamearis lucina, on a chalk grassland reserve in the UK
The Duke of Burgundy butterfly has undergone considerable range contractions across Europe and since the 1970s has lost around 84% of its former distribution in the UK. Despite its endangered status,Expand
Microhabitat selection of Aporia crataegi (Lepidoptera: Pieridae) larvae in a traditionally managed landscape
Densities of larvae and nests were positively but non-significantly correlated to density of host plants; however, in later successional stages, where host plants are most abundant, open and sunny microhabitats that can provide opportunities for larvae to warm up are lacking. Expand
Decoupling of female host plant preference and offspring performance in relative specialist and generalist butterflies
The results show that the link between female host preference and offspring performance was not significantly stronger in the specialist compared to the generalist species, and the preference and performance traits appear to evolve as largely separated units. Expand
Lepidoptera communities across an agricultural gradient: how important are habitat area and habitat diversity in supporting high diversity?
It is shown that larger areas of semi-natural grassland generally support larger numbers and a greater species richness of butterflies and moths, but that the composition of the Lepidoptera fauna changes with habitat size depending on the diversity of habitats in the landscape, particularly at the larger spatial scale.

Tracking butterflies for effective conservation
Dit proefschrift bestaat uit drie delen: het volgen van veranderingen in de verspreiding van vlinders, het volgen van veranderingen in de populatiegrootte van vlinders en hoe deze kennis te gebruikenExpand
Hybridisation and climate change: brown argus butterflies in Britain (Polyommatus subgenus Aricia)
Abstract.  1. Distribution changes brought about by climate change are likely to alter levels of hybridisation between related taxa, and may threaten some species.
Management practices for control of ragwort species
  • K. Leiss
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Phytochemistry Reviews
  • 2010
Ragwort species are mainly known for containing pyrrolizidine alkaloids, which are toxic to grazing cattle and other livestock causing considerable losses to agricultural revenue, and control of ragwort is obligatory by law in the UK, Ireland and Australia. Expand
Apollo Butterfly ( Parnassius apollo L . ) in Europe – its History , Decline and Perspectives of Conservation
Parnassius apollo colonized Europe in Neogen. Migrations during interglacial episodes probably resulted in its diversification into more than 200 identified subspecies inhabiting mainly grasslandsExpand
Biological Flora of the British Isles: Primula veris L.
This account presents information on all aspects of the biology of Primula veris that are relevant to understanding its ecological characteristics and behaviour, and investigates whether its seeds are included in wildflower seed-mixtures that are sown on new or upgraded road and motorway verges, embankments and urban conservation areas.
