Abstract Reinforcement—the process whereby maladaptive hybridization leads to the strengthening of prezygotic isolation between species—has a long history in the study of speciation. Because reinforcement affects traits involved in mate choice and fertility, it can have indirect effects on reproductive isolation between populations within species. Here we review examples of these “cascading effects of reinforcement” (CER) and discuss different mechanisms through which they can arise. We discuss… Expand
Hybridization and postzygotic isolation promote reinforcement of male mating preferences in a diverse group of fishes with traditional sex roles
TLDR
Genetic and morphological data are used to demonstrate that hybridization is ongoing between orangethroat and rainbow darters and used hybrids collected from nature to measure postzygotic barriers across two hybrid generations and indicate that selection to avoid hybridization promotes the evolution of male‐driven behavioral isolation via reinforcement in this system.

Reinforcement and the Proliferation of Species.
TLDR
It is highlighted that a downstream consequence of reinforcement is divergence of conspecific populations, and this further divergence can instigate species proliferation and, consequently, in adaptive radiation. Expand
Geographic variation in hybridization across a reinforcement contact zone of chorus frogs (Pseudacris)
TLDR
This study provides the fifth and final line of evidence that reproductive character displacement is due to reinforcement in the chorus frog contact zone and suggests that the dual action of cascade reinforcement and partial geographic isolation is promoting genetic diversification within one of the reinforced species.

Reconciling concepts, theory, and empirical patterns surrounding cascade reinforcement

TLDR
The process whereby increased prezygotic isolation among populations evolves as an incidental effect of reinforcement has been referred to as “cascade reinforcement” and as ”reproductive character displacement speciation” in this special column, and the term cascade reinforcement is used. Expand
Male-driven reinforcement and cascade reinforcement in darters
TLDR
The ability of male behavior to simultaneously drive sympatric and allopatric speciation via reinforcement is demonstrated by demonstrating a pattern consistent with male-driven cascade RCD and cascade ACD within Ceasia. Expand
Male-driven reproductive and agonistic character displacement in darters and its implications for speciation in allopatry
TLDR
It is suggested that RCD and ACD between Ceasia and E. caeruleum has incidentally led to divergence in mating and fighting traits among Ceasia species, which leads to subsequent divergence among allopatric lineages. Expand
Male and female contributions to behavioral isolation in darters as a function of genetic distance and color distance
TLDR
Behavioral isolation, genetic differentiation, and male color pattern differentiation were present between allopatric Ceasia species and males directed more aggression toward conspecific rival males. Expand
Interspecific introgression reveals a role of male genital morphology during the evolution of reproductive isolation in Drosophila
TLDR
The results provide evidence that divergence in genitalia can in fact give rise to substantial reproductive isolation early during species divergence, and they also reveal novel reproductive functions of the external male genitalia in Drosophila. Expand
To accept or reject heterospecific mates: behavioural decisions underlying premating isolation
TLDR
It is shown that the maintenance of partial reproductive isolation can be an outcome of optimal acceptance thresholds, even in the face of reinforcement, and it is proposed that integration of behavioural models in speciation research will help to gain a full picture of the mechanisms underlying premating isolation.

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 Genetics and Ecology of Reinforcement
TLDR
Reinforcement, the evolution of prezygotic reproductive barriers by natural selection in response to maladaptive hybridization, is one of the most debated processes in speciation and recent theoretical and empirical work on genetics and ecology of reinforcement suggests it can be overcome. Expand
Pervasive reinforcement and the role of sexual selection in biological speciation.
TLDR
It is shown that in birds, divergence in song and plumage in allopatry corresponds poorly with whether species mate assortatively in hybrid zones and argued that many other factors besides trait divergence affect propensity to hybridize, including rarity of conspecific mates and choice based on territory rather than male traits.

Reinforcement Can Overcome Gene Flow during Speciation in Drosophila
TLDR
Surprisingly, even in the face of gene flow, reinforcement could promote the evolution of reproductive isolation within only five generations, suggesting that reinforcement can help complete the process of speciation. 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. 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.

Recent estimates of hybridization frequency between two species of spadefoot toad, Spea multiplicata and S. bombifrons are presented and it is shown that hybridization between these species has declined precipitously over the past 27 years. 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
Speciation via species interactions: the divergence of mating traits within species.
TLDR
This work argues that RCD (and hence potentially speciation) among populations can be generated by a variety of fundamental species interactions beyond reinforcement, and unifies these interactions under one process of mating trait divergence and speciation ('RCD speciation'). 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
