Cover for Island butterflies: understanding and interpreting records.

In early investigations of island biogeography, species were seen very much as binary units, each undifferentiated (equivalent) in status. As research has progressed, it has become increasingly evident that each species has unique attributes that affect its probability of colonizing an island and...
