Emily Hornett has just published a paper in Current Biology demonstrating rapid changes in a sex-ratio distorting bacteria and a supressor locus in the host butterfly, Hypolimnas bolina. The supressor has evolved to prevent the male-killing effect of the bacterium. The study used museum specimens to document rapid evolutionary change over historical time. Here is […]
Our recent Napeogenes phylogeny published in Molecular Ecology (18:1716-1729) has been covered in the Brazilian press a few times, including this piece in the Jornal da UniCamp
Our recent Plos Biology paper describing ecological convergence between mimetic ithomiine butterflies was covered by the BBC and an interview for radio 5Live by the Naked Scientist – Listen here. The paper was also featured on the cover of Plos Biology.
Our paper in Journal of Evolutionary Biology was featured on the cover. See here for the journal cover art gallery. C. Estrada and C. D. Jiggins, “Interspecific sexual attraction because of convergence in warning colouration: is there a conflict between natural and sexual selection in mimetic species?,” Journal of Evolutionary Biology, vol. 21, iss. 3, […]
