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… Expand
