Hi all of you ...
Back to the insect world, before we start how are you today? My hope is that our condition is all right, today in my search for insects I found something interesting around where I live, namely the beautiful colors that fly, of course the beautiful butterfly.

Butterflies that exist on this earth consist of tens of thousands of types that are scattered in all parts of the world and have different physical characteristics, however, one thing we do know is that basically this class of insects has a morphology that refers to the general species as a whole. , and physically this insect's body is divided into several parts, if I'm not mistaken there are three parts, namely the head, chest, and stomach.

Butterflies as environmental Bioindicators:

Maybe some of us are still curious about why butterflies can be used as environmental bioindicators, so I will try to explain a little about that.

A simple example that can be direct for this is in determining forest damage. The structure of the lepidotera community can be used to find out how severe the damage is to the forest, we can check whether there is a butterfly population that lives in that area, why is that? Butterflies are a type of insect that likes cleanliness, butterflies will avoid it if the area has been exposed to pollution, such as smoke, insecticide toxins and also pollution caused by other things.

We can also see other bioindicators of water or mud. One of the sources of butterfly supplements is mud, we may often see butterflies suck up mud grains, which are rich in minerals and salts, which are useful for their bodies.
