Synchronization of hatching date with budburst of individual host trees (Quercus robur) in the winter moth (Operophtera brumata) and its fitness consequences



Synchronization of hatching date with budburst of individual host trees (Quercus robur) in the winter moth (Operophtera brumata) and its fitness consequences



Journal of Animal Ecology 66(1): 113-121



Due to varying selection pressures among host individuals, herbivorous insects may show local adaptation at the individual level. In Operophtera brumata, synchrony of egg hatching and host tree (Quercus robur) budburst may have important fitness consequences and, therefore, may result in a local adaptation to the hosts phenology. However, relatively high gene flow levels may disrupt such a fine-scale adaptation.
