Abstract: First, I assessed the relative importance of ecological traits (e.g., body size) in determining the extinction probability of butterflies in Singapore, and developed a predictive model to estimate the extinction proneness of Southeast Asian butterflies. Next, I investigated the probable occurrence of local co-extinctions of butterflies and their specific hostplants from Singapore, and examined the relationship between butterfly and hostplant extinction rates. Finally, I assessed the effectiveness of forest reserves, fragments and urban parks in conserving butterfly diversity in Singapore; investigated how environmental factors (e.g., canopy cover) and ecological traits (e.g., larval hostplant specificity) affect the distribution of butterflies; and examined the important determinants (e.g., area) of butterfly diversity in urban parks.
