The results suggest that RCD is not anecdotal, and that selection for divergence in male sex pheromone composition contributed to reproductive isolation within the Bicyclus genus, and propose that selection may target olfactory mate choice traits as a more common sensory modality to ensure reproductive isolation among diverging lineages than previously envisaged.
Understanding the migration ecology of European red admirals Vanessa atalanta using stable hydrogen isotopes
Stable hydrogen isotope (delta D) measurements of wings from European red admirals Vanessa atalanta are used to help uncover previously unknown aspects of red admiral migration to support the hypothesis that reproduction takes place in the Mediterranean region during winter.

The proposed time-calibrated phylogeny now provides a solid framework within which to implement mechanistic studies aimed at unravelling the ecological and evolutionary processes that culminated in the spectacular radiation of mycalesines in the Old World tropics.

The phenotypic plasticity of a broad suite of morphological and life history traits is integrated and shared among species from three geographically independent lineages of mycalesine butterflies, despite considerable periods of independent evolution and exposure to disparate environments.
Phylogenetic systematics of Colotis and associated genera (Lepidoptera: Pieridae): evolutionary and taxonomic implications
DNA barcode results were largely congruent with the traditional classification of species in the Colotis group, but deep splits or lack of genetic divergence in some cases supported either species-level differentiation or synonymy.
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 phylogeny lays a solid foundation for better understanding the evolution of Bicyclus and highlights key species-groups and complexes with intriguing ecological patterns making them prime candidates for future studies.
AFLP reveals cryptic population structure in migratory European red admirals (Vanessa atalanta)
The genetic differentiation in a migratory butterfly, the red admiral (Vanessa atalanta), was investigated to discern patterns of migratory routes used across Europe, but there was no clear pattern of isolation‐by‐distance.
A transposable element insertion is associated with an alternative life history strategy
A transposable element insertion is associated with the switch between alternative life history strategies, central to life history theory and evolutionary biology, and characterize one such mechanism for a female-limited ALHS.
