 Study of crossbred butterflies suggests multiple genes involved.When animals of two different species mate, their hybrid offspring can be unhealthy or sterile. Often, only one sex is affected.Sexual differences in fertility follow a pattern known as Haldane's Rule, which states that hybrids are afflicted more when they inherit two different s...

Good news for monarch butterflies?

4900088550_d7a45e00c9_k
The migratory monarch butterfly might not be as endangered as previously thought, according to a new study published today in Current Biology. Humans may have artificially inflated the monarch population by making changes to the habitat of Eastern and North America. The numbers we see now may reflect an expanded population from precolonial sizes. "...
