Abstract Adaptive radiation involves the diversification of species each adapted to exploit different ecological roles. I have studied a radiation of spiders in the genus Tetragnatha (Tetragnathidae) in the Hawaiian Islands to elucidate processes involved in such diversification. The temporal framework of the Hawaiian Islands allows examination of the changing pattern of adaptive radiation over time, as lineages have generally progressed down the island chain from older to younger islands… 
Co-occurrence of ecologically similar species of Hawaiian spiders reveals critical early phase of adaptive radiation
TLDR
The observation of co-occurrence of ecologically equivalent species on the young volcano of Maui provides a missing link in the process of adaptive radiation, and the ability of close relatives of the same ecomorph to interact, without admixture, may provide the conditions necessary for ecological divergence and independent evolution of e comorphs associated with adaptive radiation.
Parallel habitat specialization within the wolf spider genus Hogna from the Galápagos
TLDR
Comparison of the species phylogeny based on one mitochondrial (COI) and one nuclear (28S) gene fragment convincingly demonstrates that ‘pampa’ and ‘coastal dry’ species evolved in parallel on the islands Santa Cruz and San Cristóbal and suggests that within‐island speciation occurred under low levels of gene flow.
GENETIC DIVERGENCE IS DECOUPLED FROM ECOLOGICAL DIVERSIFICATION IN THE HAWAIIAN NESOSYDNE PLANTHOPPERS
TLDR
It is found that genetic divergence is associated with geographic features but not different plant hosts and that divergence times are very recent and on the same timescales as the dynamic geology of the island.
Diversification in the Hawaiian Drosophila
TLDR
This dissertation revolves around the diversification of a large clade of Hawaiian Drosophila, and examines the molecular evolution of this group at several different temporal scales, and presents the most comprehensively sampled data set for the AMC in terms of both species and phylogenetic characters.
Diversification and dispersal of the Hawaiian Drosophilidae: the evolution of Scaptomyza.
TLDR
This work finds evidence that the lineage originated in the Hawaiian Islands and subsequently dispersed to the mainland and other remote oceanic islands, and identifies that many of the unique ecological niches exploited by this lineage arose singly and independently.
Global biogeography of Tetragnatha spiders reveals multiple colonization of the Caribbean
TLDR
This work broadly test the monophyly of the four-jawed spiders of the Caribbean archipelago, finding low levels of endemism yet high diversity within Tetragnatha, and hypothesizes multiple colonization events to, and from the Caribbean since mid-Eocene to late-Miocene.
Genetic differentiation among populations of a Hispaniolan trunk anole that exhibit geographical variation in dewlap colour
TLDR
It is suggested that allopatric divergence alone is insufficient for speciation, whereas reduced gene flow and partial reproductive isolation may accumulate in the presence of ecological gradients.
Species diversification patterns in the Polynesian jumping spider genus Havaika Prószyński, 2001 (Araneae, Salticidae).
TLDR
This study examines the evolutionary patterns exhibited by the jumping spider genus Havaika Prószyński, 2001 in the Polynesian islands of the Hawaiian and Marquesas chains and concludes that genealogical relationships are better predicted by geographical affinity than by morphological characters used in the original descriptions of the species.
The West Indies as a laboratory of biogeography and evolution
TLDR
Dating of island lineages using molecular methods indicates over-water dispersal of most inhabitants of the West Indies, and birds of the Lesser Antilles provide evidence of a mass extinction event within the past million years, emphasizing the time-heterogeneity of historical processes.

Speciation and phylogeography of Hawaiian terrestrial arthropods
The Hawaiian archipelago is arguably the world’s finest natural laboratory for the study of evolution and patterns of speciation. Arthropods comprise over 75% of the endemic biota of the Hawaiian
Multiple origins of a spider radiation in Hawaii.
TLDR
This study coupled morphological and molecular approaches to assess the phylogenetic position of the Hawaiian Tetragnatha relative to continental congeners and to examine evidence for monophyly and provides evidence that the HawaiianTetragnathas emanate from multiple origins.
Partial island submergence and speciation in an adaptive radiation: a multilocus analysis of the Cuban green anoles
TLDR
Analysis of morphology, mitochondrial DNA and nuclear DNA in the Cuban green anoles (carolinensis subgroup) strongly supports the hypothesis that Miocene fragmentation of Cuba into three palaeo–archipelagos accompanied species–level divergence in the adaptive radiation of West Indian Anolis lizards.

TLDR
This study used an adaptive radiation of spiders within the Hawaiian Islands to test the prediction that species of spiders on different islands would independently evolve webs with similar architectures, and found that species within each island construct webs with architectures that differ from one another.
Evolution of Satellite DNAs in a Radiation of Endemic Hawaiian Spiders: Does Concerted Evolution of Highly Repetitive Sequences Reflect Evolutionary History?
TLDR
It is suggested that Tetragnatha stDNA repeats seem to be evolving gradually and cohesively during the diversification of these endemic Hawaiian spiders, and satellite DNA as a nuclear marker suggests that hybridization or peripatry could play a possible role in species formation.

  • 1994
TLDR
A phylogenetic hypothesis based on mitochondrial DNA sequences for 14 divergent races of Heliconius erato reveals that similar wing patterns have evolved rapidly and convergently within the species, suggesting a simultaneous radiation of races within the last 200,000 years.
How old is the Hawaiian biota? Geology and phylogeny suggest recent divergence
TLDR
Much of the present species pool is probably the result of recent colonization from outside the archipelago and divergence within contemporary islands, with limited dispersal from older islands, according to abundant phylogenetic studies of Hawaiian organisms.
Replicated evolution of trophic specializations in an endemic cichlid fish lineage from Lake Tanganyika.
TLDR
The authors' results indicate multiple independent origins of similar trophic specializations in these cichlids, and a pattern of repeated divergent morphological evolution becomes apparent when the phylogeography of the mitochondrial haplotypes is analyzed in the context of the geological and paleoclimatological history of Lake Tanganyika.
