For specialized herbivorous insects, shifts to novel host plants can have dramatic evolutionary consequences. If mating traits diverge, assortative mating can develop between ancestral and novel host populations and facilitate speciation. Mating signals may diverge under a variety of scenarios. Signal differences may be a consequence of divergence in correlated traits, such as body size. If local communication environments differ, mating signals may also diverge through selection for enhanced… CONTINUE READING
