  • A founder‐flush‐crash model of speciation has been proposed that may particularly apply to island and other colonizations. Previous laboratory experiments testing the model have given inconsistent results. We have conducted a large experiment with Drosophila pseudoobscura designed to meet the essential postulates of the model and to separately test some of the postulates. Forty‐five experimental and 12 control populations have been studied during seven successive founder‐flush‐crash cycles, or… CONTINUE READING
