In evolutionary biology, mimicry is the similarity of one species to another which protects one or both. This similarity can be in appearance, behavior, sound, scent and location, with the mimics found in similar places to their models. Mimicry occurs when a group of organisms,the mimics, evolve to share common perceived characteristics with another group, the models.The evolution is driven by the selective action of a signal-receiver, or dupe,such as birds that use sight to identify palatable insects (the mimics), whilst avoiding the noxious models.
