82 The opinion, once held rather widely by biologists, that related species are generally, if not universally, separated by barriers to reproduction involving incompatibility and hybrid sterility has undergone some qualifications in recent years. The modification of the time-honored view has been in part a consequence of the discovery that species of higher plants, which occupy the same range in nature without evident hybridization, may nevertheless yield fertile progeny when crossed in the… Expand

Topics from this paper

REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION IN ASCLEPIAS: LOCK AND KEY HYPOTHESIS RECONSIDERED
  • S. Kephart, C. Heiser
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1980
TLDR
The purpose of the following study was to examine the importance of the proposed mechanical factors for three sympatric species of Asclepias by determining whether interspecific pollination occurred in natural and experimental populations of A. incarnata L, A. verticillata L., and A. syriaca. Expand
THE EXPLOITATION OF POLLINATORS BY SPECIES AND HYBRIDS OF PHLOX
  • D. Levin
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1970
TLDR
The floral morphology of the species and hybrids shows that there are no mechanical barriers to pollen exchange between the entities, and the existence of hybrids attests to the ability of pollinators to effectively transport pollen among the phloxes. Expand
NATURAL SELECTION AND THE DIFFERENTIATION OF ANGIOSPERM FAMILIES
TLDR
There are certain trends in floral evolution which are repeated many times in groups with very diverse affinities, and these trends are truly progressive, with so many intermediate conditions found among living species that they cannot have arisen through the occurrence of natural selection. Expand
Adaptive Radiation of Reproductive Characteristics in Angiosperms, II: Seeds and Seedlings
TLDR
An exploratory review of characteristics of seeds and seedlings and of their relationship to the genotype-environment interactions that take place between the termination of flowering and the successful establishment of the next generation of seedlings is intended. Expand
Pollination, angiosperm speciation, and the nature of species boundaries
TLDR
The time is ripe to initiate several lines of further research on pollination to understand whether different suites of pollinators can affect consistent selection in different directions on floral characteristics, and how reproductive isolation arises within and among populations, races, and higher taxa of plants. Expand
An analysis of hybridization in Liatris
TLDR
The complex pattern of gene exchange within the population reflects the weakness of crossing and fertility barriers to hybridization. Expand
Hybrid Origins of Plant Species
TLDR
Experimental, theoretical, and empirical studies of homoploid hybrid speciation suggest that it is feasible, although evolutionary conditions are stringent, and hybridization may be important as a stimulus for the genetic or chromosomal reorganization envisioned in founder effect and saltational models of speciation. Expand
HYBRIDIZATION, HOMOGAMY, AND SYMPATRIC SPECIATION
TLDR
This paper develops the hypothesis that sympatric speciation may be less unlikely than previously considered on the basis of a realistic model suggested by recent studies of hybridization and floral isolation in a group of Penstemon species. Expand
The Role of Animal Pollination in Plant Speciation: Integrating Ecology, Geography, and Genetics
TLDR
It is concluded that floral isolation is rarely, if ever, sufficient to cause speciation on its own, but that it acts synergistically with other isolating mechanisms. Expand
A pollinator shift explains floral divergence in an orchid species complex in South Africa.
TLDR
A shift between bee and beetle pollination is identified as the main driver of floral divergence in an orchid species complex, andFloral scent and spur length appear to be key traits in mediating this evolutionary transition. Expand

ECOLOGICAL FACTORS IN SPECIATION
TLDR
It is more important to determine the respective roles of geographical and ecological factors in speciation, and to find out whether they operate consecutively or concomitantly, than to consider the role of sympatric speciation. Expand
HYBRIDIZATION IN A POPULATION OF QUERCUS MARILANDICA AND QUERCUS ILICIFOLIA
TLDR
Oaks would seem to be favorable material on which to make studies of the effects of hybridization on variability in species populations, two species particularly well suited to such studies are Quercus marilaudica Muench. Expand
HYBRIDIZATION OF THE HABITAT
TLDR
It has been the experience of most biologists that hybridization between species is rare in nature and modern advocates of reproductive isolation as a species criterion have had to phrase their definitions to permit semi-fertility between distinct species. Expand
NATURAL HYBRIDIZATION OF SALVIA APIANA AND S. MELLIFERA
TLDR
It is indicated that gene flow from species to species does not ordinarily occur, or if so, at a level difficult to distinguish from expected intraspecific variation, even though continued hybridization may seemingly provide a channel. Expand
On the Fertilisation Of Certain Labiatæ
TLDR
The constancy with which a species of insect confined its visits to the same species of flower, notwithstanding the close proximity in which the three were growing, was perfectly in harmony with Mr. Traherne Moggridge's observations of a similar character respecting the visits of insects to fumitories and other flowers. Expand
The Parasites, Predators, and Inquiline Associates of Anthophora linsleyi
TLDR
In the following pages data is given on twenty-two species of insects associated with Anthophora linsleyi Timberlake in three localities in California that were sufficiently abundant to enable the writers to definitely determine their relationship with their host. Expand
The natural cross‐pollination of crop plants with particular reference to the radish
TLDR
Experiments were carried out to determine what degree of intervarietal cross-pollination occurs when two radish varieties are grown at varying distances apart, andHybrids are distinctive; thus crossing is readily determined. Expand
EXPERIMENTAL DATA FOR A REVISION OF THE GENUS LATHYRUS
TLDR
The data presented herein are concerned with chromosome number and, to a limited extent, chromosome morphology, morphology of the plant, epidermal cell-patterns of the leaf, interspecific crossing, and geographic distribution. Expand
A STUDY IN THE RELATIVE CONSTANCY OF HIVE BEES AND WILD BEES IN POLLEN GATHERING
TLDR
The chief purpose of the investigations described in this paper was to determine the relative pollen constancy of the various insect pollinators of the apple, which proved to be solitary bees belonging to the genera Halictus and Andrena, with Bremidae and various Diptera playing a minor role.

TLDR
This chapter deals with some aspects of animal taxonomy and discusses the nature of species, which are the natural units characterized by their reproductive isolation from other such units. Expand
