Peripheral isolates are relatively small isolated or semiisolated populations dis? tributed around the periphery of a large central portion of a species' range. Range maps typically show the distribution of a species to be continuous (Udvardy, 1969; Hengeveld, 1990). However, close exami? nation of the distribution of a species or monophyletic group will likely reveal pe? ripheral isolates (Mayr, 1963). Peripheral isolates have been regarded as important units of evolutionary divergence (e.g… 

Peripatric speciation

The existence of peripatric speciation is supported by observational evidence and laboratory experiments, and scientists observing the patterns of a species biogeographic distribution and its phylogenetic relationships are able to reconstruct the historical process by which they diverged.

Phylogeny and Speciation of Felids

The phylogeny of the Felidae is reconstructed using a total evidence approach combining sequences from 12S rRNA, 16S r RNA, NADH‐5, and cytochrome b genes with morphological and karyological characters, and it indicates that vicariant speciation has played a relatively minor role in the diversification of the felids.

PATTERNS OF PARAPATRIC SPECIATION

It is shown that rapid parapatric speciation on the time scale of a few hundred to a few thousand generations is plausible even when neighboring subpopulations exchange several individuals each generation and substantiates the claims that species with smaller range sizes should have higher speciation rates.

Species-Level Paraphyly and Polyphyly: Frequency, Causes, and Consequences, with Insights from Animal Mitochondrial DNA

This survey detected species-level paraphyly or polyphyly in 23% of 2319 assayed species, demonstrating this phenomenon to be statistically supported, taxonomically widespread, and far more common than generally recognized.

Despite uncertainty regarding the exact spatial distribution of populations at speciation, genetic data indicate that even though N. emarginata currently exhibit a broad range of geographic overlap, speciation was likely allopatric and was initiated by physical isolation of populations in different zoogeographic provinces.

Budding speciation via peripheral isolation: the Psorodonotus venosus (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae) species group example

The data suggest that P. venosus is the ancestral species and P. hakkari are bud species, and chronograms of PVG well support this prediction, and the divergence events in the group co‐occurred with major climatic transformations of the Pleistocene.

Phylogeography and conservation genetics of the Columbia spotted frog (Rana luteiventris; Amphibia, Ranidae)

It is revealed that historical processes, such as range expansion and vicariance, rather than recurrent gene flow are likely responsible for observed patterns of genetic variation in R. luteiventris populations in Utah.

Historical climate change as driver of populational range expansion and differentiation in a rare and partially migratory Neotropical bird

Populations peripheral to a species’ distribution are more susceptible to new selective pressures, changes, differentiation, and extinction. The Sooty Swift Cypseloides fumigatus (Apodidae) is a rare

Microgeographic differentiation among closely related species of biomphalaria (gastropoda: planorbidae) from the andean altiplano

The private haplotypes scattered around both salt spans show that close-range dispersal is a common biogeographic process in this species, and as evolutionary units, the single isolated and restricted population of B. costata has a high priority for conservation.

Modes of Animal Speciation

Speciation is ultimately an adaptive process that involves establishment of intrin­ sic barriers to gene flow between closely related populations by development of reproductive isolating mechanisms.
