Chapter 21 (Page no: 148)

Alternatives in mating: when, how often and for how long?

This chapter focuses on the dependence of the reproductive success of butterflies to competition for mates and access to food resources in a resource-based habitat viewpoint. The influence of age on the reproductive output of Lepidoptera is also discussed.
