A predictive model for color pattern formation in the buttery wing of Papilio dardanus

Abstract:
Previously, we have proposed a mathematical model based on a modified Turing mechanism to account for pigmentation patterning in the butterfly wing of Papilio dardanus, well-known for the spectacular phenotypic polymorphism in the female of the species (Sekimura, et al., Proc. Roy. Soc. London. B 267, 851-859 (2000)). In the present paper, we use our model to predict the outcome of a number of different types of cutting experiments and compare our results with those of a model based on different hypotheses.
