The blue morpho butterfly will go from blue to brown, because of deforestation to be able to blend in with the barren land. The butterflies will also become smaller from 6" of wingspan to 3" to be able to hide better and take less energy. Because of the lack of trees in the newly deforested area, the brown will blend in better than the blue when resting. The blue will be on the underside to blend in with the sky while flying. The butterfly will be able to better adapt to the urbanized area. This is how the Blue Morpho butterfly will adapt to new changes caused by deforestation and climate change.
