Title: RESOURCES AND CONSERVATION OF NEOTROPICAL BUTTERFLIES IN URBAN FOREST FRAGMENTS
Author: RODRIGUES, JJS

Abstract: Three remnants of native semideciduous forest in southeastern Brazil within the urban area of Campinas (100 km north of Sao Paulo, nearly 900 000 inhabitants) were censused weekly for butterflies and their adult and larval food-plants. Seventy-eight species were recorded in the larger (12 ha) peripheral area while 47 and 46 species were found in two small (1-2 ha) woods in the residential zone of the city. At least 16 species reproduce in the small woods, which may aid the survival of some scarce butterfly species in the urban area. Limitation of adult food resources in the woods had a great influence on populations of two different butterfly guilds (nectar- and fruit/sap-eating species).
