Recent research on rainforest speciation has highlighted the importance of habitat variation in generating population diversification but lacks evidence of an associated reduction in gene flow. This paper describes a study in which molecular markers were used to examine the effects of allopatric divergence and habitat on levels of gene flow in the Caribbean… CONTINUE READING
