Speciation is generally considered to be a slow process involving gradual change in gene frequencies. At the same time, some patterns of variation and relationship among many groups of organisms seem explicable only on the basis of rapid genetic reorganization. Mayr (1954), for example, has suggested that the conspicuous differences between island populations of many birds and their mainland relatives may represent rapid evolution as a consequence of "genetic revolution" following drastic… Expand
