  • Species that do not interbreed because of behavioral differences are described as ethologically or sexually isolated (Dobzhansky, 1951). Ethological isolating mechanisms are well known in animals (Mayr, 1963), but knowledge of the way in which they have evolved is fragmentary. Two theories have been advanced for their origin: Muller (1939) suggested that they arise as by-products of genetic divergence in allopatric populations; Dobzhansky (1940) argued that they are developed and strengthened… CONTINUE READING
