Information about demographic history is essential for the understanding of the processes of divergence and speciation. Patterns of genetic variation within and between closely related species provide insights into the history of their interactions. Here, we investigated historical demography and genetic exchange between the Carpathian (Lissotriton montandoni, Lm) and smooth (L. vulgaris, Lv) newts. We combine an extensive geographical sampling and multilocus nuclear sequence data with the… Expand
Genomic heterogeneity of historical gene flow between two species of newts inferred from transcriptome data
TLDR
This study demonstrates the complexity of long‐term gene flow between distinct but incompletely reproductively isolated taxa which divergence was initiated millions of years ago and found evidence for genomic heterogeneity of interspecific gene flow. Expand
Isolation and gene flow in a speciation continuum in newts.
TLDR
This study reveals long-term evolutionary persistence of evolutionary lineages that may periodically exchange genes with one another: although some of these lineages may become extinct or fuse, others will acquire complete reproductive isolation and will carry signatures of this complex history in their genomes. Expand
Isolation and Gene Flow in a Speciation Continuum in Newts
TLDR
This study shows that distinct metapopulation lineages along the speciation continuum can exchange nontrivial amounts of genes and emphasizes an urgent need for effective methods accounting for gene flow in species tree reconstruction. Expand
Whole-genome analysis of multiple wood ant population pairs supports similar speciation histories, but different degrees of gene flow, across their European range
TLDR
The results suggest that divergence histories reconstructed from a few individuals may be reliable and applicable at the species level, and the geographical context of populations chosen to represent their species should be taken into account, as it may affect estimates of migration rates between species when gene flow is heterogeneous across their geographical ranges.

The Carpathians hosted extra-Mediterranean refugia-within-refugia during the Pleistocene Ice Age : genomic evidence from two newt genera
TLDR
This work test the Carpathian refugia-within-refugia hypothesis, employing genome-wide multilocus data sets for two newt species, and shows that mitochondrial DNA overestimates the age of intraspecific evolutionary lineages. Expand
Differential introgression across newt hybrid zones: Evidence from replicated transects
Genomic heterogeneity of divergence between hybridizing species may reflect heterogeneity of introgression, but also processes unrelated to hybridization. Heterogeneous introgression and itsExpand
Selective Landscapes in newt Immune Genes Inferred from Patterns of Nucleotide Variation
TLDR
An analysis of polymorphism and divergence of 634 immune genes in two lineages of Lissotriton newts: L. montandoni and L. vulgaris graecus shows long-term importance of these genes for functioning of the immune system and identifies putative targets of balancing selection. Expand
Discordant patterns of introgression across a narrow hybrid zone between two cryptic lineages of an Iberian endemic newt
TLDR
Results from ecological niche modelling show that the hybrid zone is in a climatically homogenous area with suitable habitat for the species, suggesting that contact between the two lineages is unlikely to occur further south as their distributions are currently separated by an extensive area of unfavourable habitat. Expand
Balancing selection and introgression of newt immune-response genes
TLDR
It is concluded that BS, probably involving a form of novel allele advantage, promotes introgression, and this mechanism may be a source of adaptively relevant variation in hybridizing species over prolonged periods. Expand
Linkage Map of Lissotriton Newts Provides Insight into the Genetic Basis of Reproductive Isolation
TLDR
A linkage map for European newts of the Lissotriton vulgaris species complex is presented, constructed using two families of F2 L. montandoni × L. vulgaris hybrids to empower studies on the genomic architecture of divergence and interactions between the genomes of hybridizing newts. Expand

Divergence in the face of gene flow: the case of two newts (amphibia: salamandridae).
TLDR
Gene trees and the isolation with migration analysis complemented by tests of nested IM models showed that despite deep, pre-Pleistocene divergence of the studied newts, asymmetric introgression from vulgaris to kosswigi has occurred, with signatures of recent gene flow in mtDNA and an anonymous nuclear marker, and evidence for more ancient introgressive in nuclear introns.

No evidence for nuclear introgression despite complete mtDNA replacement in the Carpathian newt (Lissotriton montandoni)
TLDR
An extensive survey of the mitochondrial (mtDNA) and nuclear (15 microsatellites) genomes in the Carpathian newt, Lissotriton montandoni (Lm) with species distribution modelling (SDM) helps emphasize the complexity of historical gene exchange between Lm and Lv. Expand
Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms Reveal Genetic Structuring of the Carpathian Newt and Provide Evidence of Interspecific Gene Flow in the Nuclear Genome
TLDR
Several outlier loci were identified in tests of interspecific differentiation, suggesting genomic heterogeneity of gene flow between species, and the level of introgression was higher in Lm populations classified as admixed than in syntopic populations. Expand
PERSPECTIVE: GENE DIVERGENCE, POPULATION DIVERGENCE, AND THE VARIANCE IN COALESCENCE TIME IN PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC STUDIES
  • S. Edwards, P. Beerli

  • 2000
TLDR
It is shown that phylogeographic studies in vertebrates suggest that divergence of alleles in ancestral species can comprise from less than 10% to over 50% of the total divergence between sister species, suggesting that the problem of ancestral polymorphism in dating population divergence can be substantial.

TLDR
Understanding of the conditions that faciliate divergence in the face of gene flow is improved, by showing that gene flow between cave and spring salamanders was ongoing during speciation, rather than having occurred after a long period of allopatric divergence. Expand
Crossing the species barrier: genomic hotspots of introgression between two highly divergent Ciona intestinalis species.

The history and degree of isolation of two cryptic and partially sympatric model species are clarified and a methodological framework to investigate genome-wide heterogeneity (GWH) at various stages of speciation process is provided. Expand
Divergence with Gene Flow: Models and Data
TLDR
This mode of diversification—divergence with gene flow—includes sympatric speciation, in which gene exchange occurs since onset of divergence, and secondary contact following a period of geographic isolation, as well as all sorts of situations in which Gene flow happens intermittently. Expand
Demographic Divergence History of Pied Flycatcher and Collared Flycatcher Inferred from Whole-Genome Re-sequencing Data
TLDR
The estimated divergence time and population size changes suggest that the ancestral species persisted through one of the glacial periods of middle Pleistocene and then split into two large populations that first increased in size before going through severe bottlenecks and expanding into their current ranges.

TLDR
DNA evidence indicates temperate species in Europe had different patterns of postglacial colonization across the same area and different ones in previous oscillations, whereas the northwest region of North America was colonized from the north, east and south. Expand
