Reproductive barriers and divergence in species’ mate recognition systems underlie major models of speciation. However, hybridization between divergent species is common, and classic mechanisms to explain permeable reproductive barriers rarely consider how an individual may attain reproductive success. Alternative mating tactics (AMTs) exist in various forms across animal taxa. Such tactics may allow poorer quality individuals to gain mating opportunities and facilitate introgression either… Expand
The roles of inter- and intra-sexual selection in behavioral isolation between native and invasive pupfishes
TLDR
It is found that male–male aggression differs between closely and distantly related groups, but female choice does not suggest thatmale–male competition may be the more likely mechanism to impede gene flow in this system. Expand
Morphological Polymorphism Associated with Alternative Reproductive Tactics in a Plethodontid Salamander
TLDR
Evidence suggests the existence of these ARTs within three putative species in the two-lined salamander (Eurycea bislineata) species complex, with other members of this clade fixed for one of the two tactics. Expand
The role of genetic diversity in the evolution and maintenance of environmentally-cued, male alternative reproductive tactics
TLDR
This study provides new insights into the origin of ARTs in the bulb mite, highlighting the importance of GEIs: genetic correlations, epistatic interactions, and sex-specific inbreeding depression across environmental stressors. Expand

TLDR
This study provides new insights into the origin of ARTs in the bulb mite, highlighting the importance of GEIs: genetic correlations, epistatic interactions, and sex-specific inbreeding depression across environmental stressors. Expand
Insights from intralocus tactical conflict: adaptive states, interactions with ecology and population divergence
TLDR
How an appreciation of IATC can change the authors' perspectives in three areas: 1) adaptive states for traits associated with ARTs (e.g. growth rates, behavioural plasticity); 2) how selection due to ecological variation across populations can produce patterns of divergence between ARTS; 3) and the evolutionary stability of polymorphisms.

Toward an understanding of the chemical ecology of alternative reproductive tactics in the bulb mite (Rhizoglyphus robini)
TLDR
It is argued chemical ecology offers a novel perspective for research on ARTs and other complex life-history traits, if the observed intersexual and intrasexual differences in pheromone production are adaptive, if they are a by-product of allometric scaling, or diet-mediated pheramone production under weak selection.

Riverscape properties contribute to the origin and structure of a hybrid zone in a Neotropical freshwater fish
TLDR
It is suggested that a natural hybrid zone between two divergent lineages of the sexually dimorphic Neotropical fish Nematocharax venustus was probably established by secondary contact as a result of a river capture event between the Contas and Pardo river basins. Expand
Cytonuclear discordance, reticulation and cryptic diversity in one of North America's most common frogs.
TLDR
It is suggested that the antiquity of common ancestors was not as important as the maintenance of allopatry in the divergence in P. crucifer genetic lineages and the understanding of the early stages of speciation is expanded. Expand
Leveraging eDNA to expand the study of hybrid zones
TLDR
It is argued that rapidly advancing environmental DNA (eDNA) methodology could be adopted for studies of hybrid zones to increase temporal sampling, refine and geographically expand sampling density, and collect data for taxa that are difficult to directly sample. Expand

Contact zone dynamics during early stages of speciation in a chorus frog (Pseudacris crucifer)
TLDR
The spring peeper is a widespread Nearctic chorus frog with six divergent mitochondrial DNA lineages, many of which came into secondary contact during the Holocene, and genetics, morphology, advertisement calls and female preference for two lineages that now overlap in southwestern Ontario, Canada are examined.

Individual mating decisions and hybridization
  • G. Rosenthal
  • Biology, Medicine

TLDR
The dynamics of gene flow among populations ultimately depend on behavioural interactions among individuals and the mechanisms underlying mate choice can determine whether hybridization promotes or retards speciation. Expand
The impact of extra-pair mating behavior on hybridization and genetic introgression
TLDR
The results suggest that an alternative mating tactic may have major effects on the level of genetic homogenization and can cause local extinction of a species. Expand

TLDR
A new model for the evolution of AMTs is suggested that incorporates both environmental and genetic effects, and is suggested to be a source, and possibly also a consequence, of sexual conflict. Expand
Experimental evidence that extra-pair mating drives asymmetrical introgression of a sexual trait
TLDR
It is concluded that sexual selection via extra-pair mating is a likely mechanism responsible for the asymmetrical introgression of plumage colour in this system, and is potentially driven by a sensory bias for the red plumage signal. Expand
Asymmetric Introgression in a Spotted Salamander Hybrid Zone.
TLDR
This work sampled 489 genotypes across a hybrid zone between 2 phylogeographic lineages of the spotted salamander, Ambystoma maculatum, and characterized discordant patterns of nuclear and mitochondrial introgression across the contact boundary to underscore the complexity of interacting mechanisms that give rise to reproductive asymmetries in the earliest stages of the speciation process.

Intersexual dynamics mediate the expression of satellite mating tactics: unattractive males and parallel preferences
TLDR
Male green treefrogs, Hyla cinerea, attract both potential mates and satellite males with their advertisement calls, and noncalling males showed phonotactic behaviour similar to that of females, and their acoustic preferences roughly paralleled those of females. Expand
Alternative male reproductive tactics drive asymmetrical hybridization between sunfishes (Lepomis spp.)
TLDR
Bluegill cuckolders frequently spawn in pumpkinseed nests and are responsible for the asymmetrical hybridization between the species, which is known to be asymmetrical. Expand
Testing for intraspecific postzygotic isolation between cryptic lineages of Pseudacris crucifer
TLDR
Results suggest that lineages differ in tadpole survival and that F1 hybrids may have equal fitness and higher than average mass at metamorphosis compared with pure parental crosses, implying hybrid early life viability may not be the pivotal reproductive isolation barrier helping to maintain lineage boundaries.

TLDR
Fisher’s model of stabilizing selection on multiple traits, under which reproductive isolation evolves as a side‐effect of adaptation in allopatry, confirms a priori arguments that while recombinant hybrids are less fit on average, some gene combinations may be fitter than the parents, even in the parental environment.
