To and fro in the archipelago: Repeated inter-island dispersal and New Guinea’s orogeny affect diversification of Delias

Post by wollastoni »

The City College of New York, led by David Lohman, has just published a major research project on the Delias genus, in which I participated.

I recommend that you all read it, as it's a very thorough study with many conclusions, not only in taxonomic terms, but also in terms of evolution, biogeography, ocean level ...

The pdf is available free of charge for 50 days only, before being put behind a paywall. Don't forget to download it.

It will be of interest to anyone who loves Delias, New Guinea... but also to those seeking to understand the scientific conclusions that a DNA study can provide.

Congratulations on what appears to be an excellent 'magnum opus'.

This is a seriously important paper for all Delias enthusiasts.

Thank you Adam.

And some conclusions can be useful to understand the diversity of several butterflies families.
