 In the evolutionary process of an animal lineage, interactions in secondary contacts of differentiated populations and introgressive hybridization may play an important role. In the Japanese islands, the carabid subgenus Ohomopterus (genus Carabus) exhibits a marked differentiation in body size and genital morphology. Although geographical differentiation is apparent, two or three species usually coexist at many localities. Their reproductive isolation relies on body size differences, chemical… CONTINUE READING
