Divergent mate choice patterns between populations may lead to premating isolation and speciation. However, similar or identical mate choice patterns may also constrain phenotypic divergence, although not necessarily genetic divergence, across populations. We examined spectral characteristics necessary for male mate choice of abstract female models in sockeye salmon, Oncorhynchus nerka, in experiments conducted on the breeding grounds and under controlled conditions in the wild. Males… CONTINUE READING
