The recent revival of interest in modes of speciation without geographic isolation (reviewed by Bush, 1975; Endler, 1977; White, 1978) makes it appropriate to reinvestigate mechanisms for clinal speciation first outlined in genetic terms by Fisher (1930, Ch. 6). He noted that following adaptive divergence of geographical or ecological races, if hybrids are at a disadvantage, genetic variation in mating preferences (and/or habitat preferences) could lead to the evolution of a decreased frequency… Expand
Hybrid Zones and Homogamy in Australian Frogs
TLDR
In spite of much theoretical deliberation and conjecture, thoroughly worked natural examples, specifically directed at evolutionary aspects of homogamic mechanisms, remain inadequate. Expand
Adaptive Dynamics of Speciation: Sexual Populations
TLDR
From the heyday of the Modern Synthesis until relatively recently, the importance of sympatric speciation has been downplayed, and the corresponding hypotheses remained obscure well beyond Maynard Smith’s seminal study. Expand
Patterns of Speciation in Drosophila Author ( s ) :
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 hybridExpand
Adaptive Dynamics of Speciation : Sexual Populations Ulf Dieckmann and
When John Maynard Smith (1966) wrote on sympatric speciation more than 35 years ago, he acknowledged that the argument “whether speciation can occur in a sexually reproducing species withoutExpand
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. Expand
Speciation Via Sexual Selection Versus Adaptive Evolution in Hawaiian Drosophila
TLDR
It is suggested that there is a range of mating types in both sexes and that differential selection between the two sexes results in the maintenance of an optimum behavioural phenotype in the population. Expand
Speciation by Natural and Sexual Selection: Models and Experiments
TLDR
It is shown that the geographical context of speciation can be viewed as a form of assortative mating and this provides a framework for interpreting results from laboratory experiments, which are found to agree generally with theoretical predictions about conditions that are favorable to the evolution of prezygotic isolation. Expand
Isolation-by-Distance and Outbreeding Depression Are Sufficient to Drive Parapatric Speciation in the Absence of Environmental Influences
TLDR
A 2-D cellular automata model showing that an initially homogeneous population might spontaneously subdivide into reproductively incompatible species through sheer isolation-by-distance when the viability of offspring decreases as the genomes of parental gametes become increasingly different is proposed.

SPECIATION BY REINFORCEMENT OF PREMATING ISOLATION
  • L. Liou, T. Price
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1994
TLDR
Computer simulations and a multilocus genetic model are used to reevaluate the theory of reinforcement and consider the evolution of female preferences for a male secondary sexual trait and the likelihood of extinction is lowered. Expand
Sympatric speciation: when is it possible?
TLDR
The present analysis confirms the view that such a selection on sufficiently polymorphic traits for speciation is ecologically realistic and shows that populations with bimodal distributions of some genetically determined quantitative characters can have a considerable life-time. Expand

SEXUAL DIMORPHISM, SEXUAL SELECTION, AND ADAPTATION IN POLYGENIC CHARACTERS
  • R. Lande
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1980
TLDR
Sexual dimorphism may result from natural and/or sexual selection, and systems of mating are often thought to evolve in response to ecological pressures, although mating preferences may be self-reinforcing. Expand
Evolution in closely adjacent plant populations
TLDR
It is invalid to conclude that a monotonic cline for reproductive isolation gives a priori evidence of its evolution in allopatry, but the existence of inverse clines in isolating mechanisms strongly suggests the evolution of isolation in sympatry. Expand
Modes of Animal Speciation
TLDR
Speciation is ultimately an adaptive process that involves establishment of intrin­ sic barriers to gene flow between closely related populations by development of reproductive isolating mechanisms. Expand
HYBRID ZONES AND REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION
The interpretation of hybrid zones remains one of the most difficult of taxonomic problems, despite the striking advances in systematics of recent decades. Mayr (1963: 496) selected sexual isolation,Expand
Essays on Evolution. III. On the Origin of Interspecific Sterility
TLDR
The purpose of the present note is to suggest a general scheme, applicable to separate-sexed forms, and to suggest allopolyploidy may be effective in producing a new fertile form that is cross-sterile with its parents. Expand
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. Expand

TLDR
The models elucidate genetic mechanisms that can initiate or contribute to rapid speciation by sexual isolation and divergence of secondary sexual characters in polygamous species. Expand
SEXUAL SELECTION AND THE EVOLUTION OF FEMALE CHOICE
  • M. Kirkpatrick
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1982
TLDR
The primary conclusion of the present paper is that the initial selective advantages for the female preference assumed by Fisher, O'Donald, and many later authors are not necessary for either the origin or subsequent elaboration of mating preferences for traits associated with reduced survivorship.

Spatial patterns in the distributions of polygenic characters.

  • 1978
TLDR
It is argued that spatial variation in selection on a polygenic character can be much more effective in increasing heterozygosity than temporal variation because of the potentially greater increase in phenotypic variance. Expand
Conditions for the existence of clines.
TLDR
The efficacy of migration and selection in maintaining genetic variability at equilibrium in this model is investigated by deducing conditions for the existence of clines under various circumstances. Expand
