Some theories of speciation propose that population bottlenecks, or "founder events" are particularly conducive to the origin of a new species (Mayr 1963; Carson 1975; Templeton 1980). One possible example concerns the marine polychaete Nereis acuminata. A laboratory population ("Lab") started with five or six individuals collected near Los Angeles has been maintained in the laboratory since 1964. Tests conducted after some 75 generations (25 y) demonstrate that the Lab population is… 
The role of founder effects on the evolution of reproductive isolation
TLDR
Experimental evolution is used to create one thousand replicates that underwent an extreme bottleneck and to study whether founder effects can lead to an increase in reproductive isolation in Drosophila yakuba, demonstrating that, similar to morphological and life‐history traits, behavioural traits can be affected by inbreeding and genetic drift.
Genetic differentiation in two sibling species of the brackish-water polychaete Hediste japonica complex (Nereididae)
TLDR
The results indicate that the two forms of the brackish-water polychaete Hediste japonica complex are reproductively isolated, clearly showing that theTwo forms are distinct species.
Molecular genetic analyses of species boundaries in the sea
TLDR
The genetic implications of various species concepts are summarized, the results of recent molecular genetic analyses of species boundaries in marine microbes, plants, invertebrates and vertebrates are reviewed, and criteria for recognition at the species level are highly inconsistent.
Chemical Signal Mediated Premating Reproductive Isolation in a Marine Polychaete, Neanthes acuminata (Arenaceodentata)
TLDR
Aggressive behavior was induced by exposure of animals to seawater “conditioned” by individuals from the other populations, thus demonstrating the role of olfaction in the detection of “home” populations and establishing that individuals can recognize and discriminate among different populations of N. acuminata on the basis of o aroma cues.
Molecular phylogenetics of the Neanthes acuminata (Annelida: Nereididae) species complex
TLDR
Maximum likelihood and Bayesian analyses of these data clarify relationships in this species complex and show that worms sampled from California and Mexico represent two geographically intermingled subclades; one subclade consists of red-eyed worms, the other consists of black-eyedworms.
Cryptic polychaete diversity: a review
TLDR
It is suggested that future research should focus on appropriately designed case‐studies using combined approaches, as well as on large‐scale whole sample analyses using next‐generation sequencing in order to be able to answer the many questions that still remains on cryptic species.
Phylogenetic Position and Genetic Diversity of Neridae - Polychaeta Based on Molecular Data from 16S r RNA Sequences
TLDR
This investigation showed how 28.16 such simple statistical summaries of huge DNA sequences data can enable to identify the structural signature of genome as well as to classify phylogenetic relationships amongst different species reflected in the differentiation of genetic diversity distributions within their DNA sequences.
The influence of food ration on sediment toxicity in Neanthes arenaceodentata (Annelida: Polychaeta)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that food ration has a strong influence on observed toxicity in N. arenaceodentata and the importance of food ration effects on toxicity must be considered while designing chronic sublethal bioassays.
Experience Matters: Females Use Smell to Select Experienced Males for Paternal Care
TLDR
It is shown that females actively chose males experienced in fatherhood over others, providing evidence for the role of chemical signals in sexual selection for paternal care and adding to the understanding of the mechanisms regulating condition-dependent mate choice.
Molecular genetic analyses of species boundaries in the sea
TLDR
The genetic implications of various species concepts are summarized, the results of recent molecular genetic analyses of species boundaries in marine microbes, plants, invertebrates and vertebrates are reviewed, and criteria for recognition at the species level are highly inconsistent.

EVIDENCE FOR RAPID SPECIATION FOLLOWING A FOUNDER EVENT IN THE LABORATORY
TLDR
Evidence for speciation in a marine invertebrate following a founder event is provided and results fall short of demonstrating the evolution of new, reproductively isolated species.

Stemming from Mayr's (1942; 1954) concept of the "founder principle", Carson (1968; 1971; 1973; 1975) hasdeveloped a somewhat unorthodox theory of speciation. Briefly, Carson views the steps in
FOUNDER‐FLUSH SPECIATION IN DROSOPHILA PSEUDOOBSCURA: A LARGE‐SCALE EXPERIMENT
TLDR
The results do not support the claim that the founder‐flush‐crash model identifies conditions very likely to result in speciation events, and it is concluded that although founder events may occasionally lead to the evolution of assortative mating and hence to speciation, the claims are not supported.
The theory of speciation via the founder principle.
TLDR
The genetic transilience model is used to explain several features of the evolution of the Hawaiian Drosophila, and experimental designs are outlined to test the major predictions of the theory.
Genetic Revolutions, Founder Effects, and Speciation
TLDR
It is argued that, although founder effects may cause speciation under sufficiently stringent conditions, they are only one extreme of a continuous range of possibilities, and divergence may be driven in a variety of ways, without the need for drastic external changes.
Divergence between populations of a monogamous polychaete with male parental care: Premating isolation and chromosome variation
TLDR
Results suggest strongly that the Atlantic and Pacific populations of Nereis acuminata have been allopatric for a long time, and are different species.
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.

An Experiment Testing Two Hypotheses of Speciation
TLDR
The results of this experiment and previous, related ones support the view that either genetic drift or selection is by itself sufficient to produce reproductive isolation as a pleiotropic by-product and help establish sexual isolation in Drosophila simulans.
