...Kelsey L. Jones; Rahmatollah Rajabzadeh; Guncha Ishangulyyeva; Nadir Erbilgin; Maya L. Evenden ABSTRACT Flight polyphenisms naturally occur as discrete or continuous traits in insects. Discrete flight polyphenisms include winged and wingless morphs, whereas continuous flight polyphenisms can take...

...Sami M. Kivelä; Karl Gotthard; Philipp Lehmann ABSTRACT The evolution of seasonal polyphenisms (discrete phenotypes in different annual generations) associated with alternative developmental pathways of diapause (overwintering) and direct development is favoured in temperate insects. Seasonal life...

... polyphenism, where one genotype gives rise to more than one phenotype, is exploited by many of its species. In social insects, for instance, larval diet influences the development into distinct castes; and locust polyphenism has tricked researchers for years into believing that the drastically different...
