About this book

Diversity and Evolution of Butterfly Wing Patterns facilitates an integrative understanding of the development, genetics and evolution of butterfly wing patterns. To develop a deep and realistic understanding of the diversity and evolution of butterfly wing patterns, it is essential and necessary to approach the problem from various kinds of key research fields such as "evo-devo", "eco-devo", "developmental genetics", "ecology and adaptation", "food plants", and "theoretical modeling."

The past decade-and-a-half has seen a veritable revolution in our understanding of the development, genetics and evolution of butterfly wing patterns. In addition, studies of how environmental and climatic factors affect the expression of colour patterns has led to an increasingly deeper understanding of the pervasiveness and underlying mechanisms of phenotypic plasticity. In recognition of the great progress in research on the biology, an international meeting titled "Integrative Approach to Understanding the Diversity of Butterfly Wing Patterns (IABP-2016)" was held at Chubu University, Japan in August 2016. Diversity and Evolution of Butterfly Wing Patterns consists of selected contributions from the meeting. Authors include main active researchers of new findings of corresponding genes as well as world leaders in both experimental and theoretical approaches to wing colour patterns.

Diversity and Evolution of Butterfly Wing Patterns provides excellent case studies for graduate and undergraduate classes in evolution, genetics/genomics, developmental biology, ecology, biochemistry, and also theoretical biology, opening the door to a new era in the integrative approach to the analysis of biological problems.
