Sexual isolation resulting from differences in mate choice behaviors is a hallmark of rapidly-speciating lineages. When present, asymmetrical sexual isolation may provide insights into the mechanisms responsible for the evolutionary change in mate signaling traits. In particular, Kaneshiro's hypothesis suggests that divergence in sexual characters between populations may arise in allopatry when 'derived' founding populations are subject to severe population bottlenecks, accompanied by a… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Sexual selection and population divergence I: The influence of socially flexible cuticular hydrocarbon expression in male field crickets (Teleogryllus oceanicus)
TLDR
The results align with theoretical predictions that the role social flexibility plays in modulating evolutionary divergence depends critically on whether responses to variation in the social environment are homogeneous across populations, or whether gene by social environment interactions occur.
Within-population sperm competition intensity does not predict asymmetry in conpopulation sperm precedence
TLDR
The results show that neither time since divergence nor sperm competitiveness predicts the strength of postmating prezygotic reproductive isolation, and it is suggested that divergence of postcopulatory phenotypes resulting in postmaterially isolated populations is potentially driven by cryptic female choice, or mutation order divergence.
The Genetics of Mating Song Evolution Underlying Rapid Speciation: Linking Quantitative Variation to Candidate Genes for Behavioral Isolation
TLDR
Whole-genome sequencing, gene prediction, and functional annotation of this region reveal an exciting and promising candidate gene, the putative cyclic nucleotide-gated ion channel-like gene, for natural variation in mating behavior, suggesting that ion channels are important targets of selection on rhythmic signaling during establishment of behavioral isolation and rapid speciation.
Speciation in stickleback fish: Interactions between sexual selection and ecology can make or break species
TLDR
The first evidence that sexual isolation has been lost in a species pair that has recently collapsed into a hybrid swarm is provided, and environmental differences may play very different roles in the evolution versus maintenance of sexual isolation and the forward versus reverse process of speciation.
Reproductive Isolation Among Allopatric Populations of Ommatissus lybicus (Hemiptera: Tropiduchidae)
TLDR
Results of no-choice mating trials supported reproductive isolation among O. lybicus populations, which may lead to rapid evolution and speciation, and a comprehensive and ecofriendly management program with emphasis on judicious use of pesticides is recommended to reduce genetic diversification.
Two in one: cryptic species discovered in biological control agent populations using molecular data and crossbreeding experiments
TLDR
These findings suggest that all consignments of biological control agents from allopatric populations should be screened for cryptic species using genetic techniques and that the importation of multiple consignment of the same species for biological control should be conducted with caution.
Geographic variation in cuticular hydrocarbon profiles in Pacific field crickets
1. Insect cuticular hydrocarbons (CHCs) serve a role in both desiccation resistance and sexual attractiveness. These two functions are thought to be maximised by different CHC compositions, which

Asymmetric Mating Preferences Accommodated the Rapid Evolutionary Loss of a Sexual Signal
TLDR
It is shown that females from ancestral, unparasitized Australian and Pacific Island populations as well as parasitized Hawaiian populations, will mate with silent flatwing males, suggesting this behavioral option predates the change in sexual signal.
SEXUAL ISOLATION, SPECIATION AND THE DIRECTION OF EVOLUTION

TLDR
This paper elaborates the hypothesis proposed by Kaneshiro (1976) and proposes a uni-directional phylogeny for the six populations of the grimshawi complex of species.
COEVOLUTION OF MALE MATING SIGNAL AND FEMALE PREFERENCE DURING EARLY LINEAGE DIVERGENCE OF THE HAWAIIAN CRICKET, LAUPALA CERASINA
TLDR
Estimates of pulse rate preference correlate significantly with mean pulse rates across populations, indicating song and preference coevolve in a stepwise manner, and suggests that sexual selection facilitates the establishment of sexual isolation, reduced gene flow, and population differentiation, prerequisites for speciation.
Mating asymmetry and the direction of evolution in the Hawaiian cricket genus Laupala
TLDR
Sexual isolation between allopatric cricket species of the genus Laupala, another endemic Hawaiian insect with an elaborate mating system, is examined, demonstrating asymmetry in sexual isolation between reciprocal combinations of L. nigra and L. paranigra.
THE EVOLUTION OF ASYMMETRY IN SEXUAL ISOLATION: A MODEL AND A TEST CASE
TLDR
A curvilinear relationship between isolation asymmetry and divergence was predicted by the model and was supported by statistical analysis of the salamander data.
Divergence of Mate Recognition Behavior and Its Consequences for Genetic Architectures of Speciation
TLDR
It is argued that a dissection of specific aspects of the genetic architecture of such traits in a comparative context can allow us to rule out some mechanisms of divergence in the speciation process.
Sexual Signal Evolution Outpaces Ecological Divergence during Electric Fish Species Radiation
Natural selection arising from resource competition and environmental heterogeneity can drive adaptive radiation. Ecological opportunity facilitates this process, resulting in rapid divergence of

TLDR
It is suggested that ancestors of the current species also expressed unimodal preference functions and that changes in acoustic communication signals occurred through shifts in mean pulse rates and pulse rate preferences among populations.

Sexual selection and speciation: the comparative evidence revisited
TLDR
A meta‐analysis of the comparative evidence finds a small but significant positive overall correlation between sexual selection and speciation rate, however, it is found that effect size estimates are influenced by methodological choices.
