Allopatric speciation results from geographic isolation between populations. In the absence of gene flow, reproductive isolation arises gradually and incidentally as a result of mutation, genetic drift and the indirect effects of natural selection driving local adaptation. In contrast, speciation by reinforcement is driven directly by natural selection against maladaptive hybridization. This gives individuals that choose the traits of their own lineage greater fitness, potentially leading to… Expand
Reinforcement as an initiator of population divergence and speciation
TLDR
How this process can occur, the conditions under which it is most likely to occur, and the empirical data needed to evaluate the hypothesis that reinforcement can initiate speciation are described are described. Expand
Does character displacement initiate speciation? Evidence of reduced gene flow between populations experiencing divergent selection
TLDR
A slight, but statistically significant, reduction in gene flow is found between selective environments, suggesting that reproductive isolation, and potentially ecological speciation, might indeed evolve as an indirect consequence of character displacement. Expand
Natural selection and divergence in mate preference during speciation
TLDR
Understanding of the evolution of sexual isolation can be enhanced by isolating the roles of diverse ecological and evolutionary processes, and it is shown that sexual isolation involves, at least in part, olfactory communication. Expand
Sexual selection drives speciation in an Amazonian frog
TLDR
Several lines of evidence are presented that sexual selection is driving behavioural isolation and speciation among populations of an Amazonian frog (Physalaemus petersi), supporting sexual selection as a cause for speciation in the wild. Expand
Hybridization and speciation
TLDR
A perspective on the context and evolutionary significance of hybridization during speciation is offered, highlighting issues of current interest and debate and suggesting that the Dobzhansky–Muller model of hybrid incompatibilities requires a broader interpretation. 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’s incidental effects on reproductive isolation between conspecifics
TLDR
It is suggested that CER is likely if (1) the rate of gene flow between conspecific populations is low; (2) divergent selection acts on phenotypes involved in reinforcement between sympatric and allopatric populations; and (3) the genetic response to reinforcement differs among conspespecific populations subject to parallel reinforcing selection. 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
Is cascade reinforcement likely when sympatric and allopatric populations exchange migrants?
TLDR
The results show that when sympatric and allopatric populations reside in the same environment and only differ in their exposure to maladaptive hybridization, migration between them generally inhibits the evolution of cascade by spreading the reinforcement alleles from sympatry into allop atry and erasing RCD. Expand
Geographic contact drives increased reproductive isolation in two cryptic Empidonax flycatchers
TLDR
It is shown that a period of contact and elevated hybridization between sympatric eastern North American populations of two cryptic bird species preceded a major increase in reproductive isolation between these populations within the last ten thousand 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

TLDR
It is possible to imagine circumstances that would lead to the appearance of sexual isolation among allopatric populations without the need for a major reorganization of the genetic material. Expand

TLDR
Examination of various allopatric and sympatric species pairs in the anurans indicates that, as known at present, there is no predictable sequence in which the various kinds of isolating mechanisms evolve, however, sympatrics species always differ in mating call, and some allop atric populations have been shown to differ enough for the females to discriminate between the calls of their own and foreign males.

WHEN VICARS MEET: A NARROW CONTACT ZONE BETWEEN MORPHOLOGICALLY CRYPTIC PHYLOGEOGRAPHIC LINEAGES OF THE RAINFOREST SKINK, CARLIA RUBRIGULARIS
TLDR
The tight geographic correspondence between transitions in mtDNA and those for nuclear genes and corresponding evidence for selection against hybrids indicates that these morphologically cryptic phylogroups could be considered as incipient species, although it is cautioned against the use of mtDNA phylogeography as a sole criterion for defining species boundaries.

The role of reinforcement in speciation: Theory and data
TLDR
It is concluded that reinforcement has probably not been looked for where it is most likely to occur, and many further areas of study are pinpointed that may ultimately provide a strong assessment of the importance of reinforcement in speciation. Expand
Reinforcement and other consequences of sympatry.
TLDR
Some recent studies of reinforcement are reviewed, alternative explanations for the pattern of greater species discrimination in sympatric taxa are discussed, and some new directions that may help to clarify the evolutionary forces involved are pointed to. Expand

A computer simulation model designed to test whether the outcome of reinforcing selection differs in a mosaic and a clinal hybrid zone illustrates how the structure of a hybrid zone can alter the outcomes of an important evolutionary process, in this case, reinforcement. Expand

The main findings from a study of a cohort of oysters were observed: that the number of heterozygous individuals in the population was much lower than predicted from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and there was a correlation between an individual's weight and thenumber of loci at which the individual was heterozygotes.
