een12051-sup-0001-TableS1.docapplication/unknown169KTable S1. Butterfly species caught in and around the study plots. A, B, C, D—captures from inside the plot; A1, B1, C1, D1—within 25 m from the plot; A2, B2, C2, D2—on paths connecting different plots, farther than 25 m from any plot. Taenaris sp. is a mixture of at least two species—T. catops and T. myops.
een12051-sup-0002-TableS2.docapplication/unknown68KTable S2. Butterfly species with ≥ 15 captures. Count of total captures, marked and recaptured individuals. R, recapture rate (recaptures/captures); Davg, mean dispersal distance in metres; Dobs, mean dispersal distance between two captures in meters; Dcor, mean dispersal distance between two captures adjusted for plots positions; Gap%, gap preference (proportion of captures in gaps); CCA, distribution optimum along succession gradient from secondary forests (low CCA values) to primary forests (high CCA values); Geo, geographical range (1, endemic for New Guinea and associated islands; 2, also in Australian tropics); Altitude, altitudinal range in PNG in metres; Size, wing span in mm.
een12051-sup-0003-TableS3.docapplication/unknown99KTable S3. Probability of an individual butterfly dispersing a particular distance estimated for well-sampled butterfly species from regression-based models (IPF and NEF) with c and z as fitted parameters and coefficient of determination (R2). Values in bold style show better fit of IPF or NEF. Probability (P): *** < 0.001 < ** < 0.01 < * < 0.05 < NS
