Climate Crisis to Take a Larger Toll on Some Butterfly Species

Some butterfly species are more prepared to survive displacement from their habitats than others, a new study by researchers from Bengaluru’s National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) has said. The study, which was published in Royal Society’s Biology Letters recently, has also warned that loss and fragmentation of habitats through urbanization, agriculture, and climate crisis may take a heavier toll on other species. Some butterfly species disperse for several hours or days to find food or breeding grounds. The researchers found that increased flight burden puts additional pressure on the egg-carrying female butterflies, which are physiologically less prepared to navigate through unknown fragmented habitats in search of larval host plants.
