Pigmentation pattern formation in butterfly wigns: Global patterns on fore- and hind-wing

Abstract:

Pigmentation patterns in butterfly wings are one of the most spectacular & vivid examples of pattern formation in biology. In this chapter, we devote our attention to the mechanisms for generating global patterns. We focus on the relationship between pattern forming mechanisms for the fore- and hindwing patterns. Through mathematical modeling and computational analysis of Papilio dardanus and polytes, our results indicate that the patterns formed on the forewing need not correlate to t...
