Abstract

Mismatches in reproductive timing can limit mating opportunities, reducing population growth, but how this changes over environmental gradients is not well understood. Using field data and a model, the authors show that elevation and elevational variability affect the growth of gypsy moth populations via effects on reproductive timing.
