Phytophagous insects represent more than 25% of biodiversity. To explain this diversity, the hypothesis has been proposed that their diversification is directly linked to that of plants via an arms race in which plants constantly develop new defenses. The thesis project consists of investigating this theory through a genomic study of molecular evolution in swallowtail butterflies in order to reveal the genomic consequences of host plant changes in relation to host plant conservatism as determined by reconstructions of ancestral states.
