Mimicry: The Hunting of the Supergene

  title={Mimicry: The Hunting of the Supergene},
  author={Deborah Charlesworth and Brian Charlesworth},
  journal={Current Biology},
Mimicry is an example of an adaptation that requires the integration of several components. Genetic characterisation of a mimicry polymorphism in a butterfly reveals the expected suppression of recombination among its components, preventing the production of unfit character combinations.
