Fig. 2

Wing area (a) and wing length (b) of monarch butterflies that successfully migrated to overwintering areas plotted against the migratory distance between natal origins and the Sierra Chincua overwinter colony in Mexico. The mean (line) and 95% confidence interval (shading) are the model-estimated relationship for females (red dashed line) and males (blue solid line). Raw data are presented as points for females (red) and males (blue). Note the reduced range of the y-axis is shown to depict the relationships for wing area (range: 636 – 1027 mm2) and wing length (range: 42.7–57.3 mm)
