Genetics of a female-specific color polymorphism in the damselfly Enallagma hageni

Project Overview
Project Abstract: 
Polymorphisms offer a great insight into our knowledge of evolutionary ecology. Many species of Odonates have a female-specific color polymorphism. The genetics of these polymorphisms has been demonstrated in only four species of Odonates. My research will use cross breeding to see if Enallagma hageni has a polymorphism due to simple Mendelian genetics.
