To investigate the time course of speciation, we gathered literature data on 119 pairs of closely related Drosophila species with known genetic distances, mating discrimination, strength of hybrid sterility and inviability, and geographic ranges. Because genetic distance is correlated with divergence time, these data provide a cross‐section of taxa at different stages of speciation. 
Does the speciation clock tick more slowly in the absence of heteromorphic sex chromosomes?

Squamates may be an attractive group in which to study the influence of sex chromosomes on speciation rates because of the repeated evolution of heterogamety (both XY and ZW), as well as an
PATTERNS OF POSTZYGOTIC ISOLATION IN FROGS
TLDR
A positive correlation between degree of divergence (measured as Nei's genetic distance, D) and degree of postzygotic isolation is found and in anurans, hybrid sterility appears to evolve more quickly than inviability, which is consistent with the conclusions that involved Drosophila species.

Genetic Analysis of Hybrid Incompatibilities in Drosophila
TLDR
Fine-scale genetic analyses and molecular analyses show that the X-chromosome plays a special role in the evolution of hybrid sterility, and that the genes causing hybrids sterility and inviability usually diverge between species by positive natural selection.
“PATTERNS OF SPECIATION IN DROSOPHILA” REVISITED
TLDR
The data from Drosophila are unique-and are likely to remain so-because of the large number of crossable species and the ease of estimating sexual and postzygotic isolation in the laboratory, and some estimates of reproductive isolation and phylogenetic relatedness when better data became available are revised.

GENETIC DIVERGENCE, REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION,
TLDR
In marine species, high dispersal is often associated with only mild genetic differentiation over large spatial scales, which is paralleled by great diversity in the types of reproductive isolation shown by recently diverged populations.
Genetics and the Origin of Two Flycatcher Species
TLDR
Different genetic tools are used to investigate pre- and postzygotic barriers to gene exchange and their role in speciation in the pied flycatcher and the colla hypoleuca.

TLDR
It is shown that the occurrence of hybrid male sterility in crosses between Drosophila mojavensis and its sister species, Dosophila arizonae, is controlled by factors present at different frequencies in different populations of D. mojavansis.
Natural selection and parallel speciation in sympatric sticklebacks.
TLDR
The post-Pleistocene radiation of threespine sticklebacks was used to infer natural selection in the origin of species, and speciation has proceeded in this adaptive radiation in a repeatable fashion.

Speciation as a Stage in Evolutionary Divergence
TLDR
A theory is suggested according to which the development of isolating mechanisms follows, rather than accompanies, that of the adaptive complexes themselves, which suggests that speciation is meant the fixation of discontinuity among organisms.

GENETIC VARIATION IN HAWAIIAN DROSOPHILA. V. CHROMOSOMAL AND ALLOZYMIC DIVERSITY IN DROSOPHILA SILVESTRIS AND ITS HOMOSEQUENTIAL SPECIES
TLDR
Any analysis of the genetics of speciation must take into account the degree of differentiation achieved at the intraspecific level, and what proportion of the total interspecific differentiation is directly attributable to the actual speciation event.
Genetics and the Origin of Species
TLDR
This research attacked the mode confusion problem by exploring the role of mutation as a basis for racial and SPECIFIC differences in biodiversity.

TLDR
A set of homosequential species in the planitibia subgroup of the picture-winged flies are studied, amongst the most closely related and the most recently evolved, and the patterns of species formation are discussed.
The Genetics of Speciation at the Diploid Level
TLDR
It is advanced that a diploid species has two differing systems of genetic variability, and speciation may occur as selection operates on the perturbed genetic system to organize new coadapted closed systems which come to characterize the new species.
GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION DURING THE SPECIATION PROCESS IN DROSOPHILA
TLDR
The question, "how much genetic differentiation occurs in the process of speciation," must be unfolded into two separate questions concerning the two stages of the process, and the genetic differentiation occurring between allopatric populations that are likely to give rise to different species if and when they become, at least partially, sympatric.
