Divergence with Gene Flow : Models and Data

  title={Divergence with Gene Flow : Models and Data},
  author={Catarina Pinho and Jody Hey},
Since Darwin first proposed that new species could arise without geographic separation, biologists have debated whether or not divergence occurs in the presence of gene exchange. Today we understand that new species can diverge while exchanging genes, depending on the strength of disruptive natural selection and the factors that affect the linkage relationships of genes under disruptive selection. This mode of diversification—divergence with gene flow—includes sympatric speciation, in which… CONTINUE READING
