Full DescriptionThis data was collected to answer two questions: (1) How do edge-effects between three land-cover types affect movement of adult male butterflies, and; (2) is response to edges influenced by perceptual range?
We visually tracked the flight behaviour of the butterfly Heteronympha merope at edges between three land-cover types: native eucalypt woodland, farmland and exotic pine plantation. Using six replicates of each edge type, we released animals on both sides of the edges, and at two distances from the edge (5 m and 30 m).
