Contrasting genetic responses to habitat fragmentation for two Lycaenid butterfly species

Daronja Trense, Jan Christian Habel, Aline Finger & Klaus Fischer
Biodiversity is currently declining at the global scale. Apart from species declines and lowered abundances, the loss of genetic diversity is equally concerning as it may undermine fitness and the potential to adapt to future environmental change. We compared genetic diversity of historical and recent Alpine populations of two butterfly species, Lycaena helle and L. hippothoe, over a period of about 10 years. Using microsatellite markers, we found no changes over time in L. helle,...

Data from: Floral evolution and pollinator diversification in Hedychium: revisiting Darwin’s predictions using an integrative taxonomic approach

Ajith Ashokan, Jana Leong-Škorničková, Piyakaset Suksathan, Mark Newman, W. John Kress & Vinita Gowda
Hedychium J.Koenig (Zingiberaceae) is endemic to the Indo-Malayan Realm and is known for its vibrant and fragrant flowers. Historically, two different pollination syndromes characterize Hedychium: diurnal or bird pollination and nocturnal or moth pollination. In this study we aim to understand the evolution of nocturnal and diurnal flowers, and to test its putative association with lineage diversification in Hedychium. A molecular tree of Hedychium was used as a scaffold upon which we estimated ancestral character-states,...
