Pattern formation in Lepidopteran wings

Abstract:

Two different kinds of patterns have been studied in lepidopteran wings - color pattern and the spacing pattern of scale cells. These patterns exist on two different spatial scales. In the early stages of adult development, precursors of scale cells differentiate throughout each epithelial monolayer and migrate into rows that are roughly parallel to the body axis and regularly spaced about 50 mum apart. We develop a mathematical model for the formation of these parallel rows of scale cells...
