Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 105:19090-5. 2008..Butterflies from all population types showed a strong tendency to follow habitat edges between the open study area and the neighboring woodlands...
- A long life in the fast lane: positive association between peak metabolic rate and lifespan in a butterflyKristjan Niitepõld
Department of Biosciences, University of Helsinki, FI 00014 Helsinki, Finland
J Exp Biol 216:1388-97. 2013..Generalisations such as 'live fast, die young' may be too simple to explain the complex processes affecting ageing and lifespan...
