- ... Variation in the degree of synchrony among host plants and herbivores can disrupt or intensify species interactions, alter the strength of natural selection on traits associated with phenological timing, and drive novel host plant associations. We used field observations from three regions during four seasons to examine how timing of the butterfly herbivore Anthocharis cardamines relative to six h ...

- ... Climate warming affects the rate and timing of the development in ectothermic organisms. Short‐living, ectothermic organisms (including many insects) showing thermal plasticity in life‐cycle regulation could, for example, increase the number of generations per year under warmer conditions. However, changed phenology may challenge the way organisms in temperate climates deal with the available ther ...
