To test the hypothesis that population subdivision into small demes promotes both rapid speciation and evolutionary changes in gene arrangement by inbreeding and drift, we estimated rates of speciation and rates of chromosomal evolution in 225 genera of vertebrates. Rates of speciation were estimated by considering the number of living species in each genus and the fossil record of each genus as well as information about extinction rates. Speciation rate was strongly correlated with rate of… Expand
On the dependence of speciation rates on species abundance and characteristic population size
TLDR
This work compares speciation rates in twelve major taxonomic groups that differ by twenty orders of magnitude in characteristic species abundance (global population number) and suggests that the latter rate is not a limiting factor for speciation. Expand
Recent and rapid speciation with limited morphological disparity in the genus Rattus.
TLDR
Lineage through time plots and ancestral state reconstruction of ecological characters suggest that diversification of Sahulian Rattus was most rapid early on as they expanded into novel ecological conditions, however, rapid lineage accumulation occurred even when morphological disparity within lineages was low suggesting that future studies consider other phenotypes in the diversifying of Rattus.

A comparative study on karyotypic diversification rate in mammals
TLDR
The results indicate that mammalian karyotypic diversity is influenced by historical and adaptive mechanisms where reproductive and genomic factors modulate the rate of chromosomal change. Expand
Rates of karyotype evolution in placental mammals.
TLDR
The correlations between size, taxonomic diversity and rates of karyotype evolution are discussed in the light of results from theoretical models describing the spread of chromosome mutations in populations and particular attention is given to the role reproductive biology may play in influencing the rate of kARYotype evolution.

Chromosome evolution and speciation in rodents
TLDR
Two alternative views look at the effects of different components of fitness in the role of chromosome change in speciation and adaptive evolution: fertility and/or fecundity in relation to the meiotic effects of rearranged chromosomes and phenotypic adaptation. Expand
Chromosomal change and rectangular evolution in North American cyprinid fishes
TLDR
Two brief tests of rectangular evolution are presented using chromosomal data from North American cyprinid fishes (minnows), a group known to have experienced heterogeneous rates of splitting, and consideration of these and other data suggests that different levels of the cyPRinid genome may follow independent evolutionary paths.

Rate of karyotype evolution and speciation in birds.
TLDR
The diploid number of chromosomes and the number of macro- and microchromosomes from 238 published bird karyotypes were used for calculation of the rate of karyotype evolution, and the data from the order Passeriformes are in agreement with the hypothesis of a high speciation rate in groups with a high rate ofKaryotypes evolution.

Chromosomal divergence and speciation in grasshoppers
TLDR
Seven broad modes of chromosomal speciation are recognised, and it is concluded that the authors cannot distinguish them and need multidisciplinary studies at the population level, where ecological, cytogenetic and population genetic factors are assessed. Expand

TLDR
New calculations of the previously used measures of chromosomal rates of evolution for different groups of gastropods, using a larger and taxonomically broader sample, indicate that these rates had been previously underestimated, although they are still lower than those of the most rapidly evolving placental groups.

Closely related species often differ karyotypically due to the fixation of chromosomal translocations and inversions which are generally deleterious when heterozygous but have normal fitnesses whenExpand
