  • The efficacy of bottlenecks to stimulate divergence in courtship behavior and consequent premating isolation was tested by serial founder‐flush episodes of three sizes (one, four, or 16 pairs) on a population of houseflies established in the laboratory from a single field population. After the fifth founder‐flush episode, intraline and interline crosses were performed to detect divergence in mating propensities and patterns of assortative mating. Videotapings of intraline courtships for the… CONTINUE READING
