A major goal of evolutionary biology is to understand how diverging populations become species. The evolution of reproductive isolation (RI) halts the genomic homogenization caused by gene flow and recombination, and enables differentiation and local adaptations to become fixed between newly forming species. Selection can favor the strengthening of RI through a process termed reinforcement. Reinforcement occurs when selection favors traits that decrease mating between two incipient species in… Expand

TLDR
The cost of hybridization is investigated by quantifying postmating RI barriers among Phlox species that comprise one of the best‐studied cases of reinforcement, and it is suggested that phenotypic divergence due to reinforcement is associated with the frequency of Hybridization and introgression, and not the cost of hybrids. Expand
Genomic evidence of gene flow during reinforcement in Texas Phlox
TLDR
It is suggested strong selection can explain how reinforcement successfully evolved in this system despite gene flow in sympatry, which could explain why reinforcement caused divergence in only one of the sympatric species. Expand
Strong Reinforcing Selection in a Texas Wildflower
TLDR
This work quantifies the strength of reinforcing selection in the Texas wildflower Phlox drummondii using a strategy that weds a population genetic model with field data and finds that selection on flower color genes generated by reinforcement is exceptionally strong. Expand
Genomics of Speciation in Temperate and Boreal Angiosperm Trees
TLDR
Recent work to understand the pattern and process of speciation in angiosperm trees is highlighted, and how contemporary sequencing technologies are providing insights into the genomic mechanisms that underlie genomic porosity on the one hand, and isolation on the other is highlighted. Expand
Genomic Signatures of Reinforcement
TLDR
Two major goals are to understand if genome scans for particular patterns of genetic variation could identify reinforcement, isolate the genetic basis of reinforcement, or infer the conditions under which reinforcement evolved. Expand
Lessons on Evolution from the Study of Edaphic Specialization
TLDR
Both reduced competitiveness and greater susceptibility to herbivory have been documented among some edaphic specialists when grown in ‘normal’ soils, suggesting that a high physiological cost of tolerance may result in strong divergent selection across soil boundaries. 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.

Hybridization in Plants: Old Ideas, New Techniques[OPEN]
TLDR
How new advancements in genomic and genetic tools are revolutionizing the ability to document the occurrence of and investigate the outcomes of hybridization in plants is discussed. Expand
Restricted gene flow within and between rapidly diverging Neotropical plant species
TLDR
Patterns of gene flow within and between two members of a rapid Neotropical species radiation, Costus pulverulentus and Costus scaber, are document and the effectiveness of prezygotic isolating mechanisms at maintaining species boundaries in young radiations is highlighted. Expand
Ecological speciation in Senecio lautus
TLDR
The experimental results demonstrate that interfertile plant populations adapting to contrasting environments may diverge as a consequence of concurrent natural selection acting against migrants and hybrids through multiple mechanisms, and suggest that herbivory may play an important role in the early stages of plant speciation.

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
Identification of two genes causing reinforcement in the Texas wildflower Phlox drummondii
TLDR
Names are identified of two genes that appear to cause a flower colour change in Phlox drummondii that involve cis-regulatory mutations to genes in the anthocyanin biosynthetic pathway (ABP). Expand
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
Plant Speciation
TLDR
Polyploid speciation, in which the entire genome is duplicated, is particularly frequent in plants, perhaps because polyploid plants often exhibit ecological differentiation, local dispersal, high fecundity, perennial life history, and self-fertilization or asexual reproduction. Expand

TLDR
These studies indicate that crossing barriers prevent potentially maladaptive hybridization and effectively reinforce the speciation process, adding to mounting evidence for reinforcement from animal studies and showing that plant speciation may also involve complex mate recognition systems. 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 of reproductive isolation between adjacent populations in the Park Grass Experiment
TLDR
It is shown that this has occurred at least once in populations of the grass Anthoxanthum odoratum growing in the Park Grass Experiment where flowering time has shifted at the boundaries between plots, and gene flow via pollen has been severely limited. 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
Pollinator-Mediated Selection on Flower Color Allele Drives Reinforcement
TLDR
Using common-garden field experiments, it is demonstrated that reinforcing selection is generated by nonrandom pollinator movement, in which pollinators move less frequently between intensely pigmented P. drummondii and P. cuspidata. Expand
Evolution in closely adjacent plant populations
TLDR
It is invalid to conclude that a monotonic cline for reproductive isolation gives a priori evidence of its evolution in allopatry, but the existence of inverse clines in isolating mechanisms strongly suggests the evolution of isolation in sympatry. Expand
