Sample text

Ants are so eager for this honeydew they will stroke the caterpillar over and over again. Phil estimates that ants attending a metalmark solicit their new friend at least once a minute. When it grows tired of the attention, the caterpillar audibly taps the ground. Like scolded children, the ants stop—for a while. Instead of returning to its nest, an ant may stay with a metalmark for over a week, kept there by a series of tricks and a false sense of duty. At the front of the caterpillar, two tentacle organs seem to emit a chemical alarm similar to the one ants use when they signal each other.

Of number, and extinction, and of how many butterflies exist in the world? There is more to do, and that is true still for places such as Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, where ~ 14 ~ OBSESSION WITH BUTTERFLIES John Tennent is a scientific associate for the British Natural History Museum. During a recent collecting trip, he came across a flowering tree on the island of San Cristobal. In brief, intense periods of producing nectar, such trees attract a variety of butterflies. John caught three with one swoop of his net, a male and two females of two unknown species.

From the plant’s point of view, they are the cavalry. Wounded plants also emit chemicals that tell moth species to avoid laying more eggs on the plant. The moth obeys because she knows that the plant’s defenses have been activated by larvae who would compete with her own. Presumably, butterflies get a similar message. This is that other dimension, here but not here, outside what we know: molecular cries for help, the scent of intrigue, secrets in the air. Layers upon layers. The chemical mix that a plant sends out can signal which species of caterpillar is feeding on the leaf, telling choosy parasitic wasps that this caterpillar will be the right host for their young.
