Sexual isolation can evolve due to natural selection against hybrids (reinforcement). However, many different forms of hybrid dysfunction, and selective processes that do not involve hybrids, can contribute to the evolution of sexual isolation. Here we review how different selective processes affect the evolution of sexual isolation, describe approaches for distinguishing among them, and assess how they contribute to variation in sexual isolation among populations of Timema cristinae stick… Expand
Host shifts and signal divergence: mating signals covary with host use in a complex of specialized plant‐feeding insects
TLDR
The hypothesis that hosts shifts have led to speciation in the Enchenopa binotata species complex of treehoppers in part through their influence on divergence in mate communication systems is supported. Expand
Divergent host-plant adaptation and the evolution of reproductive isolation
TLDR
Molecular and morphological evidence suggest that the hostassociated forms of T. cristinae are unlikely to have achieved species status such that thehost forms represent either an ongoing speciation event or population divergence that has reached equilibrium. Expand
Role of sexual selection in speciation in Drosophila
TLDR
Comparative studies based on intra- and inter-sexual selection provide evidence that both mate choice and male–male competition can cause selection of trait and preference which thereby leads to divergence among species. Expand
Dimensionality of sexual isolation during reinforcement and ecological speciation in Timema cristinae stick insects
TLDR
If sexual isolation tends to have a strong upper limit to its dimensionality, as observed in the dataset, levels of divergence sufficient for speciation may require multiple forms of reproductive isolation. Expand
REINFORCEMENT IN CHORUS FROGS: LIFETIME FITNESS ESTIMATES INCLUDING INTRINSIC NATURAL SELECTION AND SEXUAL SELECTION AGAINST HYBRIDS
  • E. Lemmon, A. Lemmon
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2010
TLDR
Fitness estimates of laboratory‐raised hybrids between the chorus frogs Pseudacris feriarum and PseudACris nigrita are presented and strong support for reinforcement as the force driving displacement in this system is found. Expand
GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION AND SELECTION AGAINST MIGRANTS IN EVOLUTIONARILY REPLICATED EXTREME ENVIRONMENTS
TLDR
Overall, reproductive isolation and genetic differentiation appear to be replicated and direct consequences of local adaptation to sulfide spring environments, but the relative contributions of different mechanisms of reproductive isolation vary across these evolutionarily independent replicates. Expand
Mechanisms of reinforcement in natural and simulated polymorphic populations
TLDR
Congruence of the results for allele frequencies versus fixation probabilities suggests that similar patterns of reinforcement are expected during different stages of the speciation process. Expand
Sexual dimorphism dominates divergent host plant use in stick insect trophic morphology
TLDR
The results show that trophic morphology does not strongly contribute to host-adapted ecotype divergence in T. cristinae and that traits can respond to complex selection regimes by diverging along different intraspecific lines, thereby impeding progress toward speciation. Expand
Phylo-comparative analyses reveal the dual role of drift and selection in reproductive character displacement
TLDR
It is shown how the phylo-comparative method together with genomic data can be used to evaluate evolutionary processes at the population level in closely related species and quantify the amount of drift and selection necessary for RCD to lead to speciation. Expand

Ecological divergence promotes the evolution of cryptic reproductive isolation
  • P. Nosil, B. Crespi
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
  • 2006
TLDR
It is shown that ecological divergence between populations of herbivorous walking sticks is integral to the evolution of cryptic reproductive isolation and that post-mating sexual interactions do not necessarily evolve independently of the ecological environment. Expand
PARALLEL EVOLUTION OF SEXUAL ISOLATION IN STICKLEBACKS
TLDR
This work investigates the roles of divergent natural and sexual selection in the evolution of sexual isolation between sympatric species of threespine sticklebacks and finds that sexual isolation arises in the same way: assortative mating on body size and asymmetric isolation due to male nuptial color. Expand
Host-plant adaptation drives the parallel evolution of reproductive isolation
TLDR
It is reported that divergent selection for host adaptation, and not genetic drift, has promoted the parallel evolution of sexual isolation in this species, a clear demonstration that host-plant adaptation can play a crucial and repeatable role in the early stages of speciation. Expand
Reproductive isolation caused by visual predation on migrants between divergent environments

TLDR
Evidence that population divergence in cryptic coloration can also cause reproductive isolation is provided and data indicate that high rates of visual predation on less–cryptic migrants are likely to reduce encounters, and thus interbreeding, between host–associated populations. Expand
Reinforcement during ecological speciation

  • Biology, Medicine

TLDR
This paper investigates the situation where hybrids are selected against for ecological reasons, for example when there is no niche for individuals that are phenotypically intermediate between the parental species. Expand
Reinforcement drives rapid allopatric speciation
TLDR
It is shown that reinforcing natural selection has resulted in significant premating isolation of a population in the contact zone not only from the other lineage but also, incidentally, from the closely related main range of its own lineage. Expand
The Genetics of Speciation by Reinforcement
TLDR
It is shown that reinforced mating discrimination is inherited as a dominant trait, exhibits variability within species, and may be influenced by a known set of candidate genes involved in olfaction, the first high-resolution genetic study of variation within species for female mating discrimination that is enhanced by natural selection. Expand
Reproductive isolation driven by the combined effects of ecological adaptation and reinforcement
TLDR
These findings demonstrate the joint effects of reinforcement, ecological adaptation and gene flow on progress towards speciation in the wild in Timema cristinae walking-stick insects. Expand
Speciation by Natural and Sexual Selection: Models and Experiments
TLDR
It is shown that the geographical context of speciation can be viewed as a form of assortative mating and this provides a framework for interpreting results from laboratory experiments, which are found to agree generally with theoretical predictions about conditions that are favorable to the evolution of prezygotic isolation.

It is possible to imagine circumstances that would lead to the appearance of sexual isolation among allopatric populations without the need for a major reorganization of the genetic material. Expand
