In a paper published seven years ago in this journal (Coyne and Orr 1989a), we analyzed the time course of speciation in Drosophila by correlating electrophoretic genetic distance between pairs of species (a number roughly proportional to their divergence time) with the strength of reproductive isolation between them. That analysis yielded five conclusions. First, both prezygotic and postzygotic reproductive isolation increase with divergence time between taxa. Second, prezygotic (sexual… Expand
How Often Does Sympatry Affect Sexual Isolation in Drosophila?

TLDR
The Coyne and Orr (1989, 1997) data sets clearly show that sympatry influences prezygotic isolation, the frequency with which interactions among sympatric taxa cause increases in prezyGotic isolation is not clear and the comparative method may be used to estimate more accurately the frequency of increases.

A BIOGEOGRAPHIC GENETIC APPROACH FOR TESTING THE ROLE OF REINFORCEMENT: THE CASE OF DROSOPHILA PSEUDOOBSCURA AND D. PERSIMILIS
Abstract The role of reinforcement in speciation can be explained by two distinct models. In model I, two diverged populations hybridize and produce fertile hybrids that successfully backcrossExpand
Rapid sexual and genomic isolation in sympatric Drosophila without reproductive character displacement
TLDR
Speciation in the Drosophila athabasca species complex is at least an order of magnitude older than previously assumed, and it is suggested that these semispecies should be given full species status and adopted new nomenclature. Expand
A BIOGEOGRAPHIC GENETIC APPROACH FOR TESTING THE ROLE OF REINFORCEMENT: THE CASE OF DROSOPHILA PSEUDOOBSCURA AND D. PERSIMILIS
TLDR
More parsimonious explanations such as reinforcement without genetic exchange (model II) and ecological differentiation, which require high levels of preexisting reproductive isolation between populations, are suggested. Expand
The molecular basis of speciation: from patterns to processes, rules to mechanisms
TLDR
A new ‘hierarchical faster-sex’ theory is proposed: the rapid evolution of sex and reproduction-related genes (SRR) genes in combination with the preferential involvement of the X-chromosome (hemizygous X-effects) and sexually selected male traits (faster-male evolution). Expand
Divergence and Reproductive Isolation in the Early Stages of Speciation
TLDR
A study of patterns of phenotypic divergence and premating and postmating isolation between populations of the grasshopper Chorthippus parallelus suggests that the potential of a taxon to exercise mate choice may affect the types of factor that promote speciation in that group. Expand
Divergence and reproductive isolation in the early stages of speciation
TLDR
A study of patterns of phenotypic divergence and premating and postmating isolation between populations of the grasshopper Chorthippus parallelus suggests that the potential of a taxon to exercise mate choice may affect the types of factor that promote speciation in that group. Expand
Reproductive isolation among allopatric Drosophila montana populations
TLDR
Investigation of barriers among allopatric populations of Drosophila montana found premating (sexual) isolation was particularly strong in crosses involving males from one of the study populations, and it was experimentally demonstrated that the majority of eggs produced were unfertilized. Expand
THE ACCUMULATION OF REPRODUCTIVE INCOMPATIBILITIES IN AFRICAN CICHLID FISH
TLDR
The results suggest divergent ecological adaptations may prevent populations from interbreeding and help maintain cichlid species diversity, which may be vulnerable to environmental degradation. Expand
CONSPECIFIC SPERM PRECEDENCE IN SISTER SPECIES OF DROSOPHILA WITH OVERLAPPING RANGES

  • 2004
TLDR
It is suggested that noncompetitive and competitive gametic isolating barriers may contribute to reproductive isolation between D. yakuba and D. santomea where they are sympatric. Expand

Ethological isolation between sympatric and allopatric species of the Obscura group of Drosophila.
TLDR
Ethological (sexual) isolation is found between any two of these species, although some cross-mating is observed in almost all combinations, and natural selection promotes ethological isolation and other premating isolating mechanisms between related species exposed to the challenge of hybridization. Expand
FURTHER EVIDENCE ON SEXUAL ISOLATION WITHIN DROSOPHILA ATHABASCA
TLDR
This paper presents additional evidence that the widely distributed North American species Drosophila athabasca is divided by sexual isolation. Expand
SPECIATION BY REINFORCEMENT OF PREMATING ISOLATION
  • L. Liou, T. Price
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1994
TLDR
Computer simulations and a multilocus genetic model are used to reevaluate the theory of reinforcement and consider the evolution of female preferences for a male secondary sexual trait and the likelihood of extinction is lowered. Expand
GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION DURING THE SPECIATION PROCESS IN DROSOPHILA
TLDR
The question, "how much genetic differentiation occurs in the process of speciation," must be unfolded into two separate questions concerning the two stages of the process, and the genetic differentiation occurring between allopatric populations that are likely to give rise to different species if and when they become, at least partially, sympatric.

TLDR
It is suggested that despite their morphological divergence, these species are much more newly formed than classical sibling species. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA variation among the Drosophila athabasca semispecies and Drosophila affinis.
Morphology, allozymes, and levels of postreproductive isolation indicate that the semispecies of Drosophila athabasca are as recently diverged as typical populations within a Drosophila species.Expand
Speciation driven by natural selection in Drosophila
TLDR
The results suggest that females of D. pseudoobscura evolved increased sexual isolation from their sibling species, D. persimilis, by natural selection against maladaptive hybridization. Expand
Speciation by reinforcement: a model derived from studies of Drosophila.
TLDR
It is suggested that an increase in the level of female mating discrimination can yield reinforcement without further divergence of either male characters or female preferences, and selection on mating discrimination is a viable mechanism for reinforcement and may allow speciation under less stringent conditions than selection on female preference. Expand
A Theoretical Investigation of Speciation by Reinforcement
TLDR
A closer examination of the reinforcement model of speciation using a computer simulation reveals that there are a number of implicit assumptions necessary for reinforcement to work, suggesting that speciation by reinforcement is not nearly as prevalent as much of the biological literature suggests.

TLDR
The data suggest that D. bocki is the most genetically isolated, although all are morphologically indistinguishable, in D. kikkawai and D. leontia, indicating that they have diverged recently from a common ancestor. Expand
