Natural selection acts to build and reinforce barriers to gene exchange between populations whose hybridization results in reproductive wastage (Dobzhansky 1970). This has been demonstrated experimentally by Koopman (1950), Wallace (1954), Knight, Robertson, and Waddington (1956), Kessler (1966), and most recently, by Dobzhansky and Pavlovsky (1971). These last authors have shown that, by means of selection over a period of some 70 generations, ethological isolation can be constructed where… Expand
