- Polymorphic mimicry, microhabitat use, and sex-specific behaviourM Joron
The Galton Laboratory, University College London, 4, Stephenson Way, London, NW1 2HE, UK
J Evol Biol 18:547-56. 2005..The interaction between mimicry and sex-specific behaviours may therefore facilitate the evolution of polymorphism via enhanced, fine-scale local adaptation...
- The evolution of a Müllerian mimic in a spatially distributed communityMathieu Joron
Institut des Sciences de l Evolution, Universite de Montpellier, Place Eugene Bataillon, 34095 Montpellier Cedex 05, France
J Theor Biol 237:87-103. 2005..Local adaptation is predicted in most polymorphic cases. These results are in very good accordance with recent empirical findings on the polymorphic butterflies Heliconius numata and H. cydno...
- Heliconius wing patterns: an evo-devo model for understanding phenotypic diversityM Joron
Section of Evolutionary Biology, Institute of Biology, Leiden University, PO Box 9516, Leiden 2300 RA, The Netherlands
Heredity (Edinb) 97:157-67. 2006..These exciting results and the development of new genomic resources make Heliconius a very promising evo-devo model for the study of adaptive change...
- A conserved supergene locus controls colour pattern diversity in Heliconius butterfliesMathieu Joron
Institute of Evolutionary Biology, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
PLoS Biol 4:e303. 2006..We also show that adaptive evolution, both convergent and diversifying, can occur by the repeated involvement of the same genomic regions...
- Batesian mimicry: can a leopard change its spots--and get them back?Mathieu Joron
Institute of Evolutionary Biology, University of Edinburgh, Ashworth Laboratories, West Mains Road, Edinburgh EH9 3JT, UK
Curr Biol 18:R476-9. 2008..Can undefended mimics survive outside the range of their noxious models? Two recent studies on Batesian mimicry suggest they can, but alternative survival strategies and morphologies are then favoured...
- Strikingly variable divergence times inferred across an Amazonian butterfly 'suture zone'Alaine Whinnett
University College London, Galton Laboratory, 4 Stephenson Way, London NW1 2HE, UK
Proc Biol Sci 272:2525-33. 2005..Our data therefore strongly refute a simple hypothesis of simultaneous vicariance and suggest that ongoing parapatric or other modes of differentiation in continuous forest may be important in driving diversification in Amazonia...
- Genomic tools and cDNA derived markers for butterfliesAlexie Papanicolaou
Institute of Evolutionary Biology, School of Biological Sciences, Ashworth Laboratories, Kings Buildings, West Mains Road, University of Edinburgh, EH9 3JT, Edinburgh, UK
Mol Ecol 14:2883-97. 2005..erato and H. melpomene. These markers will be used for comparative linkage mapping in Heliconius and will have applications in other phylogenetic and genomic studies in the Lepidoptera...
- Captivity masks inbreeding effects on male mating success in butterfliesMathieu Joron
