Allopatric Divergence, Secondary Contact, and Genetic Isolation in Wild Yeast Populations

Abstract

In plants and animals, new biological species clearly have arisen as a byproduct of genetic divergence in allopatry. However, our understanding of the processes that generate new microbial species remains limited [1] despite the large contribution of microbes to the world's biodiversity. A recent hypothesis claims that microbes lack biogeographical… (More)
