The level of DNA polymorphism in the ancestral species at the time of speciation can be estimated using DNA sequences from many loci sampled from 2 or more extant species. The comparison between ancestral and extant polymorphism can be informative about the population genetics of speciation. In this study, we collected and analyzed DNA sequences of approximately 60 genes from 4 species of Sonneratia, a common genus of mangroves on the Indo-Pacific coasts. We found that the 3 ancestral species… CONTINUE READING
