Changes in butterfly distributions and species assemblages on a Neotropical mountain range in response to global warming and anthropogenic land use

Abstract:

Aim

To assess the changes in the elevational distribution of 151 butterfly species over a period of 22 years (1988–2011) and investigate whether these changes are related to regional global warming and land use change.

Location

Sierra de Juárez, Oaxaca, Mexico.

Methods

Butterflies were surveyed at eight sites spanning elevations ranging from 117 m to 3000 m in 1988, and the same sites were resurveyed in 2010–2011. Changes in the elevational distribu...
