Gender Differences in Species Recognition and the Evolution of Asymmetric Sexual Isolation
Closely related sympatric species are expected to evolve strong species discrimination because of the reinforcement of mate preferences. Fitness costs of heterospecific matings are thought to beExpand
Selective Predation on Wing Morphology in Sympatric Damselflies
Although predation is thought to affect species divergence, the effects of predator‐mediated natural selection on species divergence and in nonadaptive radiations have seldom been studied. WingExpand
EFFECTS OF NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION ON ADAPTIVE POPULATION DIVERGENCE AND PREMATING ISOLATION IN A DAMSELFLY
Abstract The relative strength of different types of directional selection has seldom been compared directly in natural populations. A recent meta-analysis of phenotypic selection studies in naturalExpand
Heterospecific courtship, minority effects and niche separation between cryptic butterfly species
Species interacting in varied ecological conditions often evolve in different directions in different local populations. The butterflies of the cryptic Leptidea complex are sympatrically distributedExpand
Female mate choice determines reproductive isolation between sympatric butterflies
Animal courtship rituals are important for species recognition, and a variety of cues might be utilized to recognize conspecific mates. In this paper, we investigate different species-recognitionExpand
Reproductive isolation and patterns of genetic differentiation in a cryptic butterfly species complex
Molecular studies of natural populations are often designed to detect and categorize hidden layers of cryptic diversity, and an emerging pattern suggests that cryptic species are more common and moreExpand
Rapid Increase in Genome Size as a Consequence of Transposable Element Hyperactivity in Wood-White (Leptidea) Butterflies
Abstract Characterizing and quantifying genome size variation among organisms and understanding if genome size evolves as a consequence of adaptive or stochastic processes have been long-standingExpand
Asymmetric life-history decision-making in butterfly larvae
In temperate environments, insects appearing in several generations in the growth season typically have to decide during the larval period whether to develop into adulthood, or to postpone adultExpand
Habitat choice precedes host plant choice – niche separation in a species pair of a generalist and a specialist butterfly
The sister species Leptidea reali and L. sinapis have partitioned their niches differently in different parts of their sympatric distribution. In Spain and France L. sinapis is a widespreadExpand
Strategic larval decision-making in a bivoltine butterfly
In temperate areas, insect larvae must decide between entering winter diapause or developing directly and reproducing in the same season. Long daylength and high temperature promote directExpand
