mimicry defined in 1951 year

mimicry - mimicry;
mimicry - Protective similarity in appearance of one species of animal to another. In Batesian mimicry one of the two is poisonous, distasteful, or otherwise protected from predators, and often conspicuously marked (warning or aposematic coloration); the other, innocuous, gaining protection from predators by similarity to the first. In Mullerian mimicry both species are protected from predators, and they gain mutually from having the same warning coloration since predators can learn to avoid both species by tasting one. Mimicry occurs particularly amongst insects.
