Mimicry is the sincerest form of survival

General Information on Mimicry is a simple but rich website on, well, mimicry, specifically Batesian and Mullerian mimicry. It's on Jim Mallett's web page, a guy who (to my joy) accepts sympatric speciation by host race diversification, but who, to my displeasure, thinks there is a One True Species Definition (although his version is pretty good for many purposes).

Anyway, if you ever wanted to find out anything about mimicry, go here and follow the links.
