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...

Cover for Assessing the status of individual species on islands: from geography to ecology.

An important issue emerging in more recent years is that to understand the presence of species on islands, greater attention needs to be paid to species life histories and ecology: measures of island geography, in themselves, provide valuable but insufficient predictors of the occurrence of...

At the outset of Chapter 7, it was mentioned that populations of species (such as butterflies) are subject to perpetual changes in their environments caused by fluctuations and trends in conditions. This chapter considers the impacts of these changes over a longer time scale: such changes in...
