Butterfly genome reveals promiscuous exchange of mimicry adaptations among species
The evolutionary importance of hybridization and introgression has long been debated. Hybrids are usually rare and unfit, but even infrequent hybridization can aid adaptation by transferringExpand

Adaptive Introgression across Species Boundaries in Heliconius Butterflies
It is widely documented that hybridisation occurs between many closely related species, but the importance of introgression in adaptive evolution remains unclear, especially in animals. Here, we haveExpand

Rapid Rate of Control-Region Evolution in Pacific Butterflyfishes (Chaetodontidae)
Abstract. Sequence differences in the tRNA-proline (tRNApro) end of the mitochondrial control-region of three species of Pacific butterflyfishes accumulated 33–43 times more rapidly than did changesExpand

A Conserved Supergene Locus Controls Colour Pattern Diversity in Heliconius Butterflies
We studied whether similar developmental genetic mechanisms are involved in both convergent and divergent evolution. Mimetic insects are known for their diversity of patterns as well as theirExpand

Concordant evolutionary patterns among Indo-West Pacific Butterflyfishes
Genetic differences within a 495 base pair section of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene reveal a striking concordance among species in two monophyletic groups of Indo-west Pacific butterflyfishes.Expand

COLOR PATTERN EVOLUTION, ASSORTATIVE MATING, AND GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION IN BRIGHTLY COLORED BUTTERFLYFISHES (CHAETODONTIDAE)
In butterflyfishes (Chaetodontidae), color pattern evolves rapidly and is often the only morphological trait separating closely related species. Vivid coloration is frequently assumed to provideExpand

Phylogenetic discordance at the species boundary: comparative gene genealogies among rapidly radiating Heliconius butterflies.
Recent adaptive radiations provide excellent model systems for understanding speciation, but rapid diversification can cause problems for phylogenetic inference. Here we use gene genealogies toExpand

Development and evolution on the wing
Butterfly wing patterns are more than just visually stunning examples of the evolutionary process. They are also emerging as exceptional model systems with which to link the developmental and geneticExpand

Complex modular architecture around a simple toolkit of wing pattern genes
Identifying the genomic changes that control morphological variation and understanding how they generate diversity is a major goal of evolutionary biology. In Heliconius butterflies, a small numberExpand

A Genetic Linkage Map of the Mimetic Butterfly Heliconius melpomene
Heliconius melpomene is a mimetic butterfly that exhibits great geographic variation in color pattern. We present here a genetic linkage map based on analysis of genetic markers in 73 individualsExpand
