    • Evolutionary novelty in a butterfly wing pattern through enhancer shuffling 

      Wallbank, Richard W. R.; Baxter, Simon W.; Pardo-Diaz, Carolina; Hanly, Joseph J.; Martin, Simon H.; Mallet, James; Dasmahapatra, Kanchon K.; Salazar, Camilo; Joron, Mathieu; Nadeau, Nicola; McMillan, W. Owen; Jiggins, Chris D.
      An important goal in evolutionary biology is to understand the genetic changes underlying novel morphological structures. We investigated the origins of a complex wing pattern found among Amazonian Heliconius butterflies. ...

    • Male sex pheromone components in Heliconius butterflies released by the androconia affect female choice 

      Darragh, Kathy; Vanjari, Sohini; Mann, Florian; Gonzalez-Rojas, Maria F.; Morrison, Colin R.; Salazar, Camilo; Pardo-Diaz, Carolina; Merrill, Richard M.; McMillan, W. Owen; Schulz, Stefan; Jiggins, Chris D.
      Sex-specific pheromones are known to play an important role in butterfly courtship, and may influence both individual reproductive success and reproductive isolation between species. Extensive ecological, behavioural and ...

    • Wing patterning gene redefines the mimetic history of Heliconius butterflies 

      Hines, Heather M.; Counterman, Brian A.; Papa, Riccardo; Albuquerque de Moura, Priscila; Cardoso, Marcio Z.; Linares, Mauricio; Mallet, James; Reed, Robert D.; Jiggins, Chris D.; Kronforst, Marcus R.; McMillan, W. Owen
      The mimetic butterflies Heliconius erato and Heliconius melpomene have undergone parallel radiations to form a near-identical patchwork of over 20 different wing-pattern races across the Neotropics. Previous molecular ...
