Due to its long duration, the entire process of speciation has rarely been observed (Provine, 1989). Consequently, there is a proliferation of untested theory and controversy about which modes of speciation occur, their relative frequencies and their accompanying genetic changes (Templeton, 1980; Futuyma, 1983; Barton and Charlesworth, 1984; Carson and Templeton, 1984; Coyne and Barton, 1988; Barton, 1989; Coyne, 1990). The founder event plays a primary role in well-known theories ofspeciation… 
PRESUMPTIVE RAPID SPECIATION AFTER A FOUNDER EVENT IN A LABORATORY POPULATION OF NEREIS: ALLOZYME ELECTROPHORETIC EVIDENCE DOES NOT SUPPORT THE HYPOTHESIS
TLDR
The Lab population was already a species different from PI and P2 at the time when it was originally sampled in 1964, and is genetically depauperate, most likely as a consequence of the founder event, but this reduced variability contributes only trivially to the genetic differentiation between the populations.
The role of founder effects on the evolution of reproductive isolation
TLDR
Experimental evolution is used to create one thousand replicates that underwent an extreme bottleneck and to study whether founder effects can lead to an increase in reproductive isolation in Drosophila yakuba, demonstrating that, similar to morphological and life‐history traits, behavioural traits can be affected by inbreeding and genetic drift.
Investigating the relative influence of genetic drift and natural selection in shaping patterns of population structure in Delphinids (Delphinus delphis; Tursiops spp.)
TLDR
Large mitogenomic sequences were used to investigate the worldwide phylogeography of several ecotypes/species within the genus Tursiops, with a recent biogeographical calibration point being used to calculate divergence times.

TLDR
Despite their evolutionary exuberance, these rich faunas are fragile as demonstrated dramatically by the appalling tragedy that has befallen the haplochromine cichlid flock of Lake Victoria.
Genetic conséquences of historically geological and climatic events in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau : the Primula section Armerina as a case study
Understanding the relative roles of geography and ecology in driving speciation, population divergence and population dynamics is a longstanding goal in ecology and evolutionary biology. This is
The Polydora cornuta complex (Annelida: Polychaeta) contains populations that are reproductively isolated and genetically distinct
TLDR
Evidence is collected that populations of P. cornuta in North America comprise a cryptic species complex composed of at least three distinct lineages, and pairwise comparisons showed significant differences in multiple reproductive traits.
Observed Instances of Speciation
I have divided this FAQ into several sections. Part 2 discusses several definitions of what a species is. Part 3 explains the context in which observations of speciation are made. Part 4 looks at the
Allozyme electrophoretic analysis of the Hediste limnicola — H. diversicolor — H. japonica species complex (Polychaeta: Nereididae)
TLDR
This work has compared these three morphologically similar species of the polychaete genus Hediste biochemically using ten allozyme loci and has found that they are genetically distinct and constitute valid species.
Where did Marenzelleria spp. (Polychaeta: Spionidae) in Europe come from?
TLDR
Genetic analysis by means of allozyme electrophoresis and sequencing of a segment of mitochondrial 16srDNA showed that two different genetic types or sibling species of Marenzelleria were present in Europe.
Bottleneck effects on genetic variance for courtship repertoire.
TLDR
Nonadditive genetic effects on mating behavior may be important in structuring genetic variance for courtship, although most of the increases in genetic variance would be expected to reflect inbreeding depression with relatively rare situations representing the facilitation of speciation by bottlenecks.

Stemming from Mayr's (1942; 1954) concept of the "founder principle", Carson (1968; 1971; 1973; 1975) hasdeveloped a somewhat unorthodox theory of speciation. Briefly, Carson views the steps in
Genetic Revolutions, Founder Effects, and Speciation
TLDR
It is argued that, although founder effects may cause speciation under sufficiently stringent conditions, they are only one extreme of a continuous range of possibilities, and divergence may be driven in a variety of ways, without the need for drastic external changes.

TLDR
A female of Drosophila paulistorum which was captured on March 19, 1958, south of Villavicencio in the Llanos of Colombia, gave rise to a laboratory strain with a most interesting behavior, which was accordingly classified as a member of the Orinocan semispecies.

TLDR
Studies of hybrid zones allow us to quantify the genetic differences responsible for speciation, to measure the diffusion of genes between diverging taxa, and to understand the spread of alternative adaptations.
