Chasing Monarchs: Migrating with the Butterflies of Passage

The monarch butterfly is our best-known and best-loved insect, and its annual migration over millions of miles is a unprecedented common phenomenon. Robert Michael Pyle, "one of America's best average background writers" (Sue Hubbell), set out overdue one summer time to persist with the monarchs south from their northernmost breeding floor in British Columbia.

A decline in the rates of protein synthesis with starvation has been described in a number offish species (Jackim and LaRoche 1973; Smith and Haschemeyer 1980; Smith 1981; Haschemeyer 1983; Lied et al. 1983; Pocrnjic et al. 1983; Loughna and Goldspink 1984; Fauconneau et al. 1986; Houlihan et al. 1988b; Watt et al. 1988). It has frequently been suggested that the reduction in oxygen consumption which accompanies starvation is partly due to a reduction in protein synthetic rates (Smith and Haschemeyer 1980; Smith 1981; Lied et al.

The data on whole body rates of protein synthesis of Octopus vulgaris growing at 3% day-l using minimal and likely costs are equivalent to 35 and 51% of the average oxygen consumption of reported for inactive fed Octopus vulgaris (Wells et al. 1983). 0% day-', would be expending between 33 and 49% of the maximum routine oxygen consumption following feeding recorded by Wells et al. (1983). Thus the calculated energy costs for protein synthesis are not exceptional for octopus as a percentage of their oxygen consumption compared with other ectotherms.
