Divergence in Heliconius flight behaviour is associated with local adaptation to different forest structures

Denise Dalbosco Dell'Aglio, Sebastián Mena, Rémi Mauxion, W. Owen McMillan & Stephen H. Montgomery
Micro-habitat choice plays a major role in shaping local patterns of biodiversity. In butterflies, stratification in flight height has an important role in maintaining community diversity. The speciation in Heliconius butterflies is often associated with strong assortative mating, but ecological isolation and local adaptation is also considered essential. Despite its presumed importance, the role of behavioural shifts in early stages of speciation in response to differences in habitat structure is yet to be established. Here,...
