Embargo Watch

Keeping an eye on how scientific information embargoes affect news coverage

Nature lifts butterfly mimicry genes study embargo after break by Le Monde

with one comment

Nature sent this to its press list earlier this morning:

Due to early reporting we are lifting the embargo on the paper referenced below. The rest of this week’s “Nature and Nature research journals press release” remains under embargo until 1800 London time (BST) on Sunday 14 August, but you may report on the below research now.

[6] Nature: Chromosomal rearrangements maintain a polymorphic supergene controlling butterfly mimicry

Nature tells us the “early reporting” was in Le Monde, but my quick search on the newspaper’s site for “papillons” didn’t unearth anything. Maybe a French-speaking Embargo Watch reader can help.

Here’s the study.

  1. Hi Ivan,
    I was intrigued and I solved the mystery: I wrote about it in my blog (because I wanted to add the pictures of the Le Monde piece) and I supposed it would appear here as a pingback, but since it isn’t there I give you the link: http://presenteduepuntozero.wordpress.com/2011/08/25/of-butterflies-and-embargo-breaks-nature-and-le-monde/
