Abstract.— The occurrence of reinforcement is compared when premating isolation is caused by the spread of a gene causing females to prefer to mate with males carrying a population‐specific trait (a “preference” model) and by a gene that causes females to prefer to mate with males that share their own trait phenotype (an “assortative mating” model). Both two‐island models, which have symmetric gene flow, and continent‐island models, which have one‐way gene flow, are explored. Reinforcement is… Expand

Topics from this paper

Assortative mating through a mechanism of sexual selection.
TLDR
Using a mathematical model, it is shown that a gene can be selected that make females to choose mates that are similar to themselves with respect to an arbitrary tag, even if two independent and unlinked genes determine the preference and the tag. Expand
Limits to the evolution of assortative mating by female choice under restricted gene flow

  • 2010
TLDR
It is found that a weakening in the effective strength of sexual selection with strong assortment leads to the existence of both a peak level of trait differentiation and the evolution of an intermediate level of assortative mating that will cause that peak. Expand
THE EVOLUTION OF PREMATING ISOLATION: LOCAL ADAPTATION AND NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION AGAINST HYBRIDS
  • M. Servedio
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2004
TLDR
It is found that selection against hybrids may play a small role in driving preference evolution in a reinforcement model where the mating cue is separate from loci causing hybrid incompatibilities. Expand
FEMALE MATE‐CHOICE BEHAVIOR AND SYMPATRIC SPECIATION
Abstract Many models have investigated how the process of speciationmay occur in symparty. In these models, individuals are either asexual or mate choice is determined by very simple rules. Females,Expand
The evolution of sexual imprinting through reinforcement *
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a sexual imprinting component of female preference can evolve as a one‐allele assortative mating mechanism by reducing the risk of hybridization, and is generally effective at causing trait divergence. Expand
The effects of sexual selection on trait divergence in a peripheral population with gene flow
TLDR
The effects that sexual selection, long hypothesized to drive the divergence of distinct traits used in mate choice, can play in the evolution of such traits in a partially isolated peripheral population are explored. Expand
FEMALE MATE-CHOICE BEHAVIOR AND SYMPATRIC SPECIATION
TLDR
It is found that the inheritance mechanism of mate choice can have a large effect on the ease of sympatric speciation, and the correlation between trait and preference can be weak, and interpreting these results as speciation may be suspect. Expand
The Genetics of Speciation by Reinforcement
TLDR
It is shown that reinforced mating discrimination is inherited as a dominant trait, exhibits variability within species, and may be influenced by a known set of candidate genes involved in olfaction, the first high-resolution genetic study of variation within species for female mating discrimination that is enhanced by natural selection. Expand
Conflict over fertilization underlies the transient evolution of reinforcement
TLDR
A population genetic model of interspecific conflict over reinforcement, inspired by ‘gametophytic factors’, is developed, which demonstrates that this conflict results in the transient evolution of reinforcement – after female preference for a conspecific gamete trait rises to high frequency, male traits adaptively introgress into the other 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.

TLDR
A specific model is put forward in which mating behavior is determined by additive gene contributions in both sexes, and the strength of mating attraction is maximized when mating "scores" in the two sexes are equalized. Expand

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
SEXUAL SELECTION, SPACE, AND SPECIATION
TLDR
Mating‐success dependent diffusion, when coupled with the rapid divergence in phenotypes possible under the Fisher process, can lead to the coexistence of two female preferences and two male traits in sympatry. Expand
THE EFFECTS OF GENE FLOW ON REINFORCEMENT
TLDR
The results suggest that the speciation of a peripheral isolate, which undergoes essentially one‐way migration, may be difficult to complete if secondary contact occurs before reproductive isolation is fully developed. Expand
Speciation by reinforcement: a model derived from studies of Drosophila.
TLDR
It is suggested that an increase in the level of female mating discrimination can yield reinforcement without further divergence of either male characters or female preferences, and selection on mating discrimination is a viable mechanism for reinforcement and may allow speciation under less stringent conditions than selection on female preference.

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.

Theoretical Considerations of Sympatric Divergence
TLDR
Results showed that a polymorphism could be maintained particularly with high levels of selection and/or low levels of gene flow, both in single-gene and polygenic cases. Expand
Natural and sexual selection on many loci.
TLDR
The general results support the previous observation that these indirect selection forces are so weak that they are unlikely to dominate the evolution of preference-producing loci. Expand

TLDR
Results show that conspicuous male traits that decrease survival can evolve but suggest that the extent of maladaptive evolution is greatly limited relative to what is possible in a polygynous mating system for two reasons. 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
