Some prey that have secondary defences warn potential predators of these defences by means of conspicuous signals. Such aposematic signals are generally considered to aid in predators learning to ... More

Subject:
Biology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics

Mimicry and aposematism are phenomena for which the concept of an adaptive landscape has proven helpful. In mimicry evolution, members of a species become similar in appearance to an aposematic model ... More

Visual predation pressure is a strong selective force on Heliconius wing pattern evolution. Evidence comes from experiments showing that birds learn to avoid Heliconius patterns after prior ... More
