The table gives summary values on the number of plant species used as food plants by Lepidoptera larvae and as nectaring plants by the adults (mean number of plants used by a species, sd = standard deviation, min = minimum, max = maximum number), given separately for each Lepidoptera family. NA = not applicable. The data were collected and compiled by Florian Altermatt (FA) and Ian S. Pearse (IP). Please refer to the corresponding article in "The American Naturalist" titled "Similarity and specialization of the larval versus adult diet of European butterflies and moths" by these two authors as well as all original data-sources when using these data. FA is at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag), Department of Aquatic Ecology, Überlandstrasse 133, CH-8600 Dübendorf, Switzerland.
