Differences in wing morphology are described for three Eurasian populations of Drosophila lummei. A truss network of wing characters was used to quantify wing size and shape for individuals from Japan, Sweden and Russia. Sexual dimorphism in wing size and shape was not substantial, so the sexes were pooled and multivariate analyses by: View Andrea Wilcockson’s profile on LinkedIn, the world's largest professional community.

Given existing linkages between butterfly flight performance and wing shape (Dudley ; Berwaerts, Matthysen & Van Dyke ), we expect differences in wing morphology to be related to flight kinematics in Morpho. Accordingly, this study tests whether evolution of wing morphology is associated with flight height and by: Stjernholm F, Karlsson B () Nuptial gifts and the use of body resources for reproduction in the green-veined white butterfly Pieris napi.

Green-veined White. The wings are white, with prominent greenish veins on the hind wing. The upper wings have one or more spots. The Small White is similar but lacks the green veins. Butterfly wing morphology varies between species, but often also within species. This variation extends to colour, pattern, size, shape, thickness, distribution of mass and venation pattern, and has attracted much attention from evolutionary by: Butterfly wing morphology varies between species, but often also within species.

This variation extends to colour, pattern, size, shape, thickness, distribution of mass and venation pattern, and has attracted much attention from evolutionary biologists. The functional wing morphology of the wings of the scorpion fly Panorpa germanica L.

was investigated using a combination of light microscopy, high-speed cinematography, wing manipulation and mechanical testing. In rising forward flight the wings are flapped 40° out of phase along a shallow stroke plane, the forewings by:   Wing shape variation. The wing shape data were analyzed via PCA and thin-plate spline analysis to find out the shape variation (Figs 4 and 5).The first three PCs account for Cited by: The full text of this article hosted at is unavailable due to technical by: 9.

We investigate how encapsulation ability varies with adult age in overwintering and in direct-developing animals (development without diapause) of the green-veined white butterfly, Pieris napi.

Encapsulation is a resource costly trait coupled to the immune system and encapsulation ability is predicted to decrease with age, since the resource pool of important nutrients generally decreases with Cited by: 6.

Heritable variation in the P. napi wing colour and morphology has also been shown along an altitudinal gradient (Espeland et al., ). Therefore, geographical wing colour variation is unlikely to be a case of phenotypic plasticity in response to environmental by: and the functional significance of flight performance.

Butterfly wing colour (and pattern) has roles in predator avoidance and evasion, intraspecific communication and mate recognition as a result of which constraints may arise. On the basis of our experimental results we suggest that thermal functions of wing colour are minimal for by: The wings of selected species are here treated as functional deformable aerofoils and their morphology described with this in mind.

Nowhere in nature is there so much beautiful color as on the wings of butterflies. Scientists, however, are still baffled about exactly how these colors are.

Gradients (isophenes) in modifications of butterfly wing morphology (colour, pattern, size) to the north and west of Britain are shown to correlate closely with contemporary environmental gradients, whereas their alleged formation as infra-specific units in Devensian refugia off western Britain is by: Ancient Wings can be useful as a teaching device to allow students to see how putative wing patterns of a genus of butterflies have changed over evolutionary history.
