In the Sierra Nevada mountains of California there are many populations of the checkerspot butterfly, Euphydryas
editha. You notice that females of one population (population A) lay their eggs near the tip of a plant’s stem. Females of another population in the same area (population B) lay their eggs at the base of the stem on a different type of plant. The young hatch out as caterpillars; they live on the host plant and eat its leaves.
Is the information above a complete description of the butterflies’ niche?
Yes, because I know the butterflies live in the Sierra Nevada
Yes, because both eggs and adus are described above
Yes, because eggs, young, and adus are described above
No, because I also need to know what the adus eat
No, because a complete niche includes physical and biological factors
