Butterfly temperature research ‘could boost survival chances’


Thousands of wild butterflies have had their temperatures taken by researchers who hope the results could help safeguard the species’ future.

They are investigating how effectively species can warm or cool themselves, which could help the insects cope with a warming climate.

The full results will be published this summer. MORE
