  • 1 December 1989
Abstract Assortative mating by size, one of the most common mating patterns in natural populations, may be explained by three hypotheses: (1) mate choice, whereby large males, large females or largeExpand

Host-plant adaptation drives the parallel evolution of reproductive isolation
Parallel evolution of similar traits in independent populations that inhabit ecologically similar environments strongly implicates natural selection as the cause of evolution. Parallel speciation isExpand

Parent‐Offspring Conflict in the Evolution of Vertebrate Reproductive Mode
We propose and evaluate the hypothesis that parent‐offspring conflict over the degree of maternal investment has been one of the main selective factors in the evolution of vertebrate reproductiveExpand

Molecular systematics of Salmonidae: combined nuclear data yields a robust phylogeny.
The phylogeny of salmonid fishes has been the focus of intensive study for many years, but some of the most important relationships within this group remain unclear. We used 269 Genbank sequences ofExpand

Reproductive isolation driven by the combined effects of ecological adaptation and reinforcement
Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the process of speciation but few studies have elucidated the mechanisms either driving or constraining the evolution of reproductive isolation. InExpand

Stick Insect Genomes Reveal Natural Selection’s Role in Parallel Speciation
Stick to the Bush Can the underlying genetic changes driving the divergence of populations into new species be predicted or repeated? Soria-Carrasco et al. (p. 738) investigated the genetic changesExpand
