A model for using mate preference data to deduce the direction of evolution between populations related by founder events or population bottlenecks is examined. Data from a wide range of organisms satisfying the necessary constraints of population structure are compatible with the model developed by K. Y. Kaneshiro from studies of Hawaiian Drosophila. 
Specific-mate recognition systems, phylogenies and asymmetrical evolution
TLDR
A theoretical analysis of ancestral and derived male-female communication systems of various types was conducted, and the predictive ability of the two hypotheses was estimated; it is argued that neither theory correctly interprets all possible situations.
Sexual selection and speciation: Issues raised by Hawaiian Drosophila.
TLDR
The Drosophila fauna of Hawaii is extraordinarily diverse, representing about 25% of the world's described species and these flies are excellent model species for investigating the evolution of sexually selected traits.
Genetic Revolutions in Relation to Speciation Phenomena: The Founding of New Populations
As a dynamic process of genetic change, evolution manifests itself in two ways: It produces adaptive characters, and it produces species. To recognize that evolution has occurred by studying these
Divergence in mate choice systems: does evolution play by rules?
TLDR
Progress in understanding the causal forces driving mating signal evolution and incipient speciation will be expedited in model systems where ecological and evolutionary information is available and different aspects of mating behaviors that function in mate and/or species recognition are known.

TLDR
The patterns of speciation for these two island groups are compared and contrasted in light of founder effect speciation models.
Laboratory-induced changes in the mate recognition system ofDrosophila pseudoobscura
Drosophila pseudoobscura stocks maintained in laboratory culture for some time had altered mate recognition systems compared with recently collected control stocks. Three showed a significant
Genetics of a pheromonal difference contributing to reproductive isolation in Drosophila.
TLDR
Evidence is presented that suggests that sexual isolation between two closely related species of Drosophila is largely caused by differences in female cuticular hydrocarbons.
Founder effects and the evolution of asymmetrical sexual isolation in a rapidly-speciating clade
TLDR
Kaneshiro's hypothesis suggests that divergence in sexual characters between populations may arise in allopatry when 'derived' founding populations are subject to severe population bottlenecks, accompanied by a relaxation of sexual selection relative to 'ancestral' source populations.
The origin of reproductive isolating mechanisms is an important event in the process of speciation: Evidences from Drosophila
TLDR
The origin of reproductive isolating mechanisms is an important event in the process of cladogenesis (speciation), which prevents exchange of genes between Mendelian populations by genetically conditioned mechanisms which are intrinsic to the organisms themselves.
FOUNDER EFFECTS AND THE RATE OF MITOCHONDRIAL DNA EVOLUTION IN HAWAIIAN DROSOPHILA
TLDR
This analysis strongly supports the predictions made by Ohta that populations of Hawaiian Drosophila that are known to have small population sizes and to experience repeated population bottlenecks should show a more rapid rate of Molecular evolution relative to the rate of molecular evolution of species with large population sizes.

Mating Preferences Are Not Predictive of the Direction of Evolution in Experimental Populations of Drosophila
TLDR
In mate preference tests with strains of Drosophila melanogaster whose ancestral and derived relationships were known, no correspondence was found between sexual isolation and direction of evolution.

Differences in the degree of successful matings between pairs of reciprocal hybrid matings indicate the direction of evolution among related species of Drosophila. Females of a derived species do not

Inbreeding, up to 12 generations of single-pair matings, did not cause significant deviation from random mating among two sets of strains inDrosophila pseudoobscura. This contrasts with reports that

TLDR
The models elucidate genetic mechanisms that can initiate or contribute to rapid speciation by sexual isolation and divergence of secondary sexual characters in polygamous species.

The theory of speciation via the founder principle.
TLDR
The genetic transilience model is used to explain several features of the evolution of the Hawaiian Drosophila, and experimental designs are outlined to test the major predictions of the theory.
Modes of Animal Speciation
TLDR
Speciation is ultimately an adaptive process that involves establishment of intrin­ sic barriers to gene flow between closely related populations by development of reproductive isolating mechanisms.

TLDR
The extra cilia of Drosophila silvestris is interpreted as a specific new embellishment of a secondary sexual character brought about by altered sexual selection occurring very recently in one part of the species range, suggesting incipient speciation.
Evolution of drosophila on the newer hawaiian volcanoes
TLDR
New behavioural patterns appear to have become established through novel but delicate genetic coadaptation of male and female behaviour and Preliminary evidence indicates that the behavioural attributes, as well as the bristle character, have a polygenic basis, held in balance by stabilizing sexual selection.
