Many hybrid zones have a mosaic structure, yet we know of no theoretical work that examines the impact of mosaicism on the outcome of evolution. We developed a computer simulation model designed to test whether the outcome of reinforcing selection differs in a mosaic and a clinal hybrid zone. Our model was a one‐dimensional stepping‐stone model. The mosaic and clinal hybrid zones that we modeled were, respectively, a mosaic maintained by differential fitness of the interacting taxa in patchy… Expand
Clines maintained by overdominant selection in hybrid zones.
TLDR
A novel mathematical model is developed to explore the effects of one form of hybrid superiority on the genetic structure of hybrid zones and concludes that overdominance is unlikely to be detected in genetic surveys unless many loci are assayed. Expand
ASSORTATIVE MATING AND SPATIAL STRUCTURE IN HYBRID ZONES
TLDR
Using computer simulations, it is found that long distance dispersal can lead to a patchy distribution that assortative mating can then reinforce, ultimately producing a mosaic capable of persisting over evolutionarily significant periods of time. Expand
A SPATIALLY EXPLICIT INDIVIDUAL-BASED MODEL OF REINFORCEMENT IN HYBRID ZONES
TLDR
The results agree with previous one-dimensional spatial models in finding that population persistence is more likely in parapatric and patchy population distributions and show that hybrid infertility may facilitate the process of reinforcement and speciation. Expand
THE EVOLUTION OF PREMATING ISOLATION: LOCAL ADAPTATION AND NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION AGAINST HYBRIDS
  • M. Servedio

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
Ant predation as a selective agent on overwintering eggs in a field cricket mosaic hybrid zone
TLDR
Investigation of one biotic factor that potentially has a large effect on egg survival — predation by ants is investigated, showing that when ants are present, egg mortality is dramatic, increasing 2.5 fold against areas without ant infestations. 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
Reinforcement drives rapid allopatric speciation
TLDR
It is shown that reinforcing natural selection has resulted in significant premating isolation of a population in the contact zone not only from the other lineage but also, incidentally, from the closely related main range of its own lineage. Expand
The evolution of partial reproductive isolation as an adaptive optimum
TLDR
It is argued that the evolution of partial reproductive isolation is of great interest in its own right and matches empirical findings that ongoing hybridization is taxonomically widespread and presents the mechanisms by which it can be a stable evolutionary endpoint. Expand
Mechanisms of reinforcement in natural and simulated polymorphic populations
TLDR
Congruence of the results for allele frequencies versus fixation probabilities suggests that similar patterns of reinforcement are expected during different stages of the speciation process. Expand
Reproductive isolation driven by the combined effects of ecological adaptation and reinforcement
TLDR
These findings demonstrate the joint effects of reinforcement, ecological adaptation and gene flow on progress towards speciation in the wild in Timema cristinae walking-stick insects. Expand

The dynamics of hybrid zones
TLDR
It is shown that a hybrid zone involving a single locus can move in response to a selective imbalance between the two homozygotes, and also to variation in population density and dispersal rate. 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
Gene flow and selection in a cline.
TLDR
There is a characteristic length scale of variation of gene frequencies, (see PDF) and the population cannot respond to changes in environmental conditions which occur over a distance less than the characteristic length. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that environmental conditions which produce disruptive selection on habitat preference represent a special case in which sympatric speciation is particularly likely to occur. Expand
CAN GENE FLOW PREVENT REINFORCEMENT?
  • N. Sanderson

A model of reinforcement in a hybrid zone is developed in which an allele causing reinforcement may only be favored in the center of the hybrid zone and is selected against elsewhere. WhenExpand
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
Analysis of Hybrid Zones
TLDR
Hybrid zones are narrow regions in which genetically distinct populations meet, mate, and produce hybrids, and models of parapatric speciation, and of Wright's "shifting balance," involve the formation, move­ ment, and modification of hybrid zones. Expand
Pattern and process in a narrow hybrid zone
TLDR
Examination of variation in morphology and allozymes in a hybrid zone between two closely related eastern North American species of field cricket shows that patterns of variation across the zone do not conform to a simple model of monotonie clinal variation, and there is strong evidence for differential and asymmetric introgression.

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
An Evaluation of Narrow Hybrid Zones in Vertebrates
  • W. Moore
  • Biology

TLDR
The hybrid-superiority hypothesis states that hybrids are more fit than parental phenotypes in some environments, and it is suggested that stable hybrid zones are often narrow because they tend to occur in ecotones which are themselves narrow. Expand
