Selection on male sex pheromone composition contributes to butterfly reproductive isolation
Selection can facilitate diversification by inducing character displacement in mate choice traits that reduce the probability of maladaptive mating between lineages. Although reproductive characterExpand
Expanded molecular phylogeny of the genus Bicyclus (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) shows the importance of increased sampling for detecting semi-cryptic species and highlights potentials for future studies
The genus Bicyclus is one of the largest groups of African butterflies, but due to the generally cryptic nature and seasonal variation of adult wing patterns, there has been a lot of systematicExpand
Systematics and historical biogeography of the old world butterfly subtribe Mycalesina (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Satyrinae)
BackgroundButterflies of the subtribe Mycalesina have radiated successfully in almost all habitat types in Africa, Madagascar, the Indian subcontinent, Indo-China and Australasia. Studies aimed atExpand
Effects of wind and weather on red admiral, Vanessa atalanta, migration at a coastal site in southern Sweden
Each autumn, large numbers of red admirals migrate throughout northern Europe, flying south, to reach areas with conditions suitable for surviving the winter. We observed the visible butterflyExpand
Understanding the migration ecology of European red admirals Vanessa atalanta using stable hydrogen isotopes
Tracking migratory movement of small animals with variable migration patterns is difficult with standard mark-recapture methods or genetic analysis. We used stable hydrogen isotope (delta D)Expand
Phylogenetic systematics of Colotis and associated genera (Lepidoptera: Pieridae): evolutionary and taxonomic implications
We investigated the genetic diversity and phylogenetic placement of the butterflies in the genus Colotis and eight related pierid genera using sequence information from two mitochondrial and twoExpand
Revision of the Bicyclus sciathis species group (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) with descriptions of four new species and corrected distributional records
In this paper we present a thorough revision of the sciathis species group of the butterfly genus Bicyclus (Kirby). Type materials are discussed and in several cases lectotypes are assigned toExpand
Conserved patterns of integrated developmental plasticity in a group of polyphenic tropical butterflies
BackgroundDevelopmental plasticity is thought to have profound macro-evolutionary effects, for example, by increasing the probability of establishment in new environments and subsequent divergenceExpand
On the fate of seasonally plastic traits in a rainforest butterfly under relaxed selection
Many organisms display phenotypic plasticity as adaptation to seasonal environmental fluctuations. Often, such seasonal responses entails plasticity of a whole suite of morphological and life-historyExpand
Mitogenomics of 'Old World Acraea' butterflies reveals a highly divergent 'Bematistes'.
Afrotropical Acraeini butterflies provide a fascinating potential model system to contrast with the Neotropical Heliconiini, yet their phylogeny remains largely unexplored by molecular methods andExpand
