  • The gene cortex controls mimicry and crypsis in butterflies and moths. 

    Nadeau, NJ; Pardo-Diaz, C; Whibley, A; Supple, MA; Saenko, SV; Wallbank, RW; Wu, GC; Maroja, L; Ferguson, L; Hanly, JJ; Hines, H; Salazar, C; Merrill, RM; Dowling, AJ; ffrench-Constant, RH; Llaurens, V; Joron, M; McMillan, WO; Jiggins, CD (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-06-01)
    The wing patterns of butterflies and moths (Lepidoptera) are diverse and striking examples of evolutionary diversification by natural selection. Lepidopteran wing colour patterns are a key innovation, consisting of arrays ...
  • Genomic hotspots for adaptation: the population genetics of Müllerian mimicry in the Heliconius melpomene clade. 

    Baxter, SW; Nadeau, NJ; Maroja, LS; Wilkinson, P; Counterman, BA; Dawson, A; Beltran, M; Perez-Espona, S; Chamberlain, N; Ferguson, L; Clark, R; Davidson, C; Glithero, R; Mallet, J; McMillan, WO; Kronforst, M; Joron, M; ffrench-Constant, Richard; Jiggins, CD (Public Library of Science, 2010-02-05)
    Wing patterning in Heliconius butterflies is a longstanding example of both Müllerian mimicry and phenotypic radiation under strong natural selection. The loci controlling such patterns are "hotspots" for adaptive evolution ...
