    M R Kronforst
    Department of Biology, University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida, USA
    Heredity (Edinb) 86:243-50. 2001
    ..Furthermore, this result provides evidence that the current extensive degree of habitat fragmentation surrounding the city of Miami does not limit gene flow among urban subpopulations of Heliconius charithonia...
  2. pmc No genomic mosaicism in a putative hybrid butterfly species
    Marcus R Kronforst
    Section of Integrative Biology, University of Texas, Austin, TX 78712, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 274:1255-64. 2007
    ..cydno without a genetic contribution from H. melpomene. However, comparison of our data to DNA sequence data for another putative hybrid Heliconius species, Heliconius heurippa, suggests that the H. heurippa genome may be a mosaic...
  3. ncbi request reprint Reinforcement of mate preference among hybridizing Heliconius butterflies
    M R Kronforst
    Section of Integrative Biology, University of Texas, Austin, TX, USA
    J Evol Biol 20:278-85. 2007
    ..Thus, the observed pattern of reproductive character displacement of mate preference is best explained as a product of indirect selection generated by natural selection against nonmimetic hybrids...

    Marcus R Kronforst
    Section of Integrative Biology, University of Texas, Austin, Texas 78712, USA
    Genetics 174:535-9. 2006
    ..By comparing the locations of color patterning genes on linkage maps we show that three loci that act similarly in the two radiations are in similar positions on homologous chromosomes...
  7. pmc Linkage of butterfly mate preference and wing color preference cue at the genomic location of wingless
    Marcus R Kronforst
    Section of Integrative Biology, University of Texas, Austin, TX 78712, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:6575-80. 2006
    ..This effect of linkage on divergence is especially important in Heliconius because differentiation of wing color patterns in the genus has been driven and maintained by natural selection for Müllerian mimicry...

    Krushnamegh Kunte
    Section of Integrative Biology, University of Texas, Austin, Texas, United States of America
    PLoS Genet 7:e1002274. 2011
    ..In particular, ecological barriers associated with a steep thermal cline appear to maintain the distinct, mosaic genome of P. appalachiensis despite contact and occasional hybridization with both parental species...
  9. pmc The population genetics of mimetic diversity in Heliconius butterflies
    Marcus R Kronforst
    FAS Center for Systems Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 275:493-500. 2008
    ..These data reveal that Heliconius butterflies possess the coarse population genetic structure necessary for local populations to experience pronounced genetic drift which, in turn, could explain the origin of mimetic diversity...
