Natural selection is the process in which some organisms live and reproduce and others die before reproducing. Some life forms survive and reproduce because they are better suited to environmental pressures, ensuring that their genes are perpetuated in the gene pool.
Nectar is the sweet liquid produced by many flowers. Adult butterflies sip nectar through their proboscis.
The eotropical region extends from the southern tip of South America up to Mexico. This vast region includes many different habitats, including tropical rainforests.
Nocturnal means most active at night. Most moths are nocturnal.
Nymphalidae is a huge family of butterflies, containing over 5,000 species divided into many subfamilies (including Satyridae, Danaidae, Heliconiidae, and Libytheidae). Butterflies in this family have an under-developed pair of front legs. In the males, there is often a tufted scale sac on these front legs, giving these butterflies the nickname "brush-footed butterflies." This family includes emperors, monarchs, admirals, fritillaries, morphos, and others.
