The study of reproductive isolation (RI) as a prerequisite to sympatric speciation has been limited by a focus on species that have already experienced isolation. However, a complete understanding of speciation depends on observing taxa before they complete the speciation process. We estimated RI in field populations of the polyphenic mole salamander, Ambystoma talpoideum , by capturing paedomorphic (aquatic) and metamorphic (terrestrial) adults during the breeding season from two natural… CONTINUE READING
