Immigration dynamics of tropical and subtropical Southeast Asian limestone karst floras

Xiao-Qian Li, Xiao-Guo Xiang, Qiang Zhang, Florian Jabbour, Rosa Del C. Ortiz, Andrey S. Erst, Zhen-Yu Li & Wei Wang
Ex situ origins and dispersal of taxa have played important roles in the assembly of island-like biodiversity hotspots. Insular limestone karsts in Southeast Asia are hotspots of biodiversity and endemism, but the immigration processes of their unique floras are still poorly known. Here, we used Gesneriaceae as a proxy to investigate immigration dynamics of tropical and subtropical Southeast Asian karst floras. We show that immigration into subtropical Southeast Asian karst floras first occurred in the...

Uncovering the effects of Müllerian mimicry on the evolution of conspicuousness in colour patterns

Ombeline Sculfort, Ludovic Maisonneuve, Marianne Elias, Thomas G. Aubier & Violaine Llaurens
Variation in the conspicuousness of colour patterns is observed within and among defended prey species. The evolution of conspicuous colour pattern in defended species can be strongly impaired because of increased detectability by predators. Nevertheless, such evolution of the colour pattern can be favoured if changes in conspicuousness result in Müllerian mimicry with other defended prey. Here, we develop a model describing the population dynamics of a conspicuous defended prey species, and we assess the...
