Title: Heliconius
Creator: Jiggins, Chris
Publisher: University / Department of Zoology
Abstract: The Heliconius or passion-vine butterflies are tropical butterflies from the new world that show a huge diversity of wing patterns. They have undergone rapid speciation and divergence, and also show an amazing amount of convergence in wing pattern due to mimicry. Evolutionary biologists have studied these butterflies for over 150 years, and we now know a great deal about their ecology, systematics and evolution. This web site offers an introduction to their biology and current research projects studying different aspects of their genetics and evolution. [Information of the supplier]
