  • ▪ Abstract Mimicry and warning color are highly paradoxical adaptations. Color patterns in both Mullerian and Batesian mimicry are often determined by relatively few pattern-regulating loci with major effects. Many of these loci are “supergenes,” consisting of multiple, tightly linked epistatic elements. On the one hand, strong purifying selection on these genes must explain accurate resemblance (a reduction of morphological diversity between species), as well as monomorphic color patterns… CONTINUE READING
