Genetic differentiation between geographic populations is the result of local adaptation. Since any local population is most likely to differentiate from the least isolated neighboring population rather than from one that is more closely adapted to parallel environmental conditions but is more isolated, the amount of genetic differentiation that occurs across a species' range depends on and should be proportional to the absolute amount of environmental change that has occurred over this… 
Genetic Differentiation and Hybrid Viability Within and Between Some Lepidoptera Species
TLDR
The conclusions are drawn that (1) the biologically and evolutionarily important differences between populations and between species result from the genetic regulation of the genome rather than its structure per se, (2) small differences in the metabolic integration of parental populations may be crucial in determining hybrid viability, and (3) much of the driving force of speciation may be due tosmall differences in metabolic integration.
Genetic differentiation among populations of marine algae
  • D. Innes
  • Biology, Environmental Science
    Helgoländer Meeresuntersuchungen
  • 2005
TLDR
The approach is outlined and includes some of the potential problems associated with interpreting electrophoretic data, which can add to a growing understanding of the evolutionary genetics of marine algae.
Local Adaptation, Coadaptation, and Population Boundaries
TLDR
The outbreeding depression is avoided by preventing hybridization between animals with the different coadapted complexes by treating the animals as a single population and disregard the subspecific designations.
HETEROSIS AND OUTBREEDING DEPRESSION IN INTERPOPULATION CROSSES SPANNING A WIDE RANGE OF DIVERGENCE
  • S. Edmands
  • Biology
    Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1999
TLDR
Both recombinant and nonrecombinant backcross hybrids showed a decline in fitness correlated with population divergence, indicating that segregation among chromosomes contributes to the breakup of coadaptation.
Genetical differences in solutions to the crises of hybridization and competition in early sympatry
TLDR
In new contacts the unrelated crises of hybridization and resource competition seem likely to be solved in different styles, because cross-mating is commonly stopped by very few genetic changes, whereas niche-splitting typically involves many more changes.
Genetic Variation within Native Populations of Endemic Silkmoth Antheraea assamensis (Helfer) from Northeast India Indicates Need for In Situ Conservation
TLDR
Assessment of genetic diversity in cultivated and wild populations of A. assamensis suggested transposition as a mechanism for maintaining genomic diversity and implications for conservation of native populations in the wild and preserving in-farm diversity are discussed.
Genetic incompatibility between populations of the nymphalid butterfly Boloria selene from england and the United States
TLDR
Laboratory hybrids made between populations of the nymphalid butterfly Boloria selene from England and Massachusetts, U.S.A. showed relatively high genetic incompatibility between the parental populations.
EXPERIMENTAL HYBRIDIZATION BETWEEN THE NYMPHALID BUTTERFLIES PHYCIODES THAROS AND P. CAMPESTRIS MONTANA
  • C. Oliver
  • Biology
    Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1978
TLDR
The most sensitive test for genetic incompatibility between populations and species would be an assay of viability and fertility by laboratory hybridization, because of the tremendous complexity of the regulatory portion of the animal genome compared to the structural portion.
CONSERVATION UNITS AND TRANSLOCATIONS : STRATEGIES FOR CONSERVING EVOLUTIONARY PROCESSES
TLDR
It is suggested that the conservation goal should be to conserve ecological and evolutionary processes; rather than to preserve specific phenotypic variants - the products of those processes - to conserve historically isolated sets of populations.
Population Crosses and the Genetic Structure of Milkweed Bug Life Histories
TLDR
Two important elements of insect behavior are migration and diapause, and they are considered in the discussion here, along with the more traditional life table statistics that they influence.

The lack of evidence for co-adaptation in crosses between geographical races of Drosophila subobscura Coll.
TLDR
An attempt to see whether differences in co-adaptation between populations of Drosophila subobscura are related to the distance between them was described, finding no evidence of differences between populations even in crosses between populations from sites as far apart as Scotland and Israel.
A STUDY OF ALTITUDINAL RACES IN RANA PIPIENS
TLDR
A study of a number of populations of Rana pipiens from Mexico to determine some of the embryonic features that characterize each of these populations, and to study further their genetic structure by means of crossingfrogs from the different localities with each other and with frogs from the northeastern United States.
FECUNDITY OF HYBRIDS BETWEEN GEOGRAPHIC POPULATIONS OF DROSOPHILA PSEUDOOBSCURA
TLDR
The F1 hybrids between the populations were, in six out of the seven cases tried, superior in viability to both parents, and in one case intermediate between the parents, while the F2 hybrids did not differ significantly from the parents.
INTER‐POPULATION HYBRIDS IN DROSOPHILA MELANOGASTER
TLDR
Coadaptation can be defined, then, as the mutual adjustment of interacting alleles within the gene pool of a Mendelian population brought about by selection of heterozygous genotypes possessing superior adaptive values, and by the occurrence of genetic recombination between successive generations.

Results are presented of fornian serpentine soils, and other ashybridizations involving thirty-two differpeets of this striking form of endemism ent population samples of Streptanthus glandulosus that have been applied to a taxonomic interpreta.

TLDR
Samples of natural populations of Drosophila pseudoobscura were taken in certain localities in Caiifornia and in Arizona and it is suggested that an appreciable fraction of the genetic load is balanced, and thatmore the components of the Genetic load tend to act synergistically when brought to manifestation in homozygous condition.
