Comments Map of South America showing distributions and forms of H. erato and H. melpomene. On the left are shown the various forms of the species H. erato, which overlap with a co-mimetic form of H. melpomene, shown on the right. Each species contains a diverse array of pattern forms, and each form is generally partitioned by geographic region. In a given area, the forms from each species often match one another with remarkable precision.

Tree of Life Media Use Survey

The information you provide in this survey will help us improve the ToL media collection. We are trying to find out what kinds of people are using our images, movies, sounds, etc., what they are using them for, and what we could do to make the collection more useful to them.

How do you use this image? If you are a teacher/professor/librarian: At what level do you teach/learn? How old are you? Where in the world do you live/learn/teach? Do you have any suggestion on how we could improve the Tree of Life media collection?
