Identifying the molecular basis of reproductive isolation among diverging lineages represents an essential step toward understanding speciation in natural populations. Postzygotic barriers can lead to hybrid breakdown, a syndrome that has been documented in several systems, potentially involving the reactivation of transposable elements. In northeastern North America, two lake whitefish lineages have repeatedly colonized postglacial lakes ~12,000 years ago, and a dwarf limnetic species has… CONTINUE READING
