Speciation in nature : the threespine stickleback model systems
Abstract The threespine stickleback Gasterosteus aculeatus species complex is an important natural model for speciation research because it includes several replicated sets of coexisting, divergentExpand

Natural selection and parallel speciation in sympatric sticklebacks.
Natural selection plays a fundamental role in most theories of speciation, but empirical evidence from the wild has been lacking. Here the post-Pleistocene radiation of threespine sticklebacks wasExpand

PARALLEL EVOLUTION OF SEXUAL ISOLATION IN STICKLEBACKS
Abstract Mechanisms of speciation are not well understood, despite decades of study. Recent work has focused on how natural and sexual selection cause sexual isolation. Here, we investigate the rolesExpand

A GENETIC INTERPRETATION OF ECOLOGICALLY DEPENDENT ISOLATION
Hybrids may suffer a reduced fitness both because they fall between ecological niches (ecologically dependent isolation) and as a result of intrinsic genetic incompatibilities between the parentalExpand

Detailed studies of reproductive isolation and how it varies among populations can provide valuable insight into the mechanisms of speciation. Here we investigate how the strength of prematingExpand

Divergent Selection and the Evolution of Signal Traits and Mating Preferences
Mating preferences are common in natural populations, and their divergence among populations is considered an important source of reproductive isolation during speciation. Although mechanisms for theExpand

THE ROLES OF NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION DURING ADAPTATION TO A NOVEL ENVIRONMENT
Abstract The net effect of sexual selection on nonsexual fitness is controversial. On one side, elaborate display traits and preferences for them can be costly, reducing the nonsexual fitness ofExpand

Genetic Constraints and the Evolution of Display Trait Sexual Dimorphism by Natural and Sexual Selection
The evolution of sexual dimorphism involves an interaction between sex‐specific selection and a breakdown of genetic constraints that arise because the two sexes share a genome. We examined geneticExpand

Characterizing the evolution of genetic variance using genetic covariance tensors
Determining how genetic variance changes under selection in natural populations has proved to be a very resilient problem in evolutionary genetics. In the same way that understanding the availabilityExpand
