Kaneshiro (1976) and Ohta (1978) observed asymmetrical behavioral isolation between species pairs of Hawaiian Drosophila whose phylogenetic relationships had previously been inferred from cytology, morphology, and biogeography. The mating patterns were onesided in that males from putative ancestral populations confined with ancestral and derived females exhibited either random mating or heterogamic mating, while derived males in the same situation mated homogamically. These observations were… CONTINUE READING
