Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in the process of speciation but few studies have elucidated the mechanisms either driving or constraining the evolution of reproductive isolation. In theory, the direct effects of reinforcing selection for increased mating discrimination where interbreeding produces hybrid offspring with low fitness and the indirect effects of adaptation to different environments can both promote speciation. Conversely, high levels of homogenizing gene flow can… 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.

Both Geography and Ecology Contribute to Mating Isolation in Guppies
TLDR
This study investigates patterns of mating isolation between populations that do and do not exchange migrants and shows evidence for both by-product and reinforcement mechanisms depending on female ecology, and confirms that mechanisms of adaptive speciation are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Expand
Divergent host-plant adaptation and the evolution of reproductive isolation
TLDR
Molecular and morphological evidence suggest that the hostassociated forms of T. cristinae are unlikely to have achieved species status such that thehost forms represent either an ongoing speciation event or population divergence that has reached equilibrium. 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
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
Selection against migrants contributes to the rapid evolution of ecologically dependent reproductive isolation
TLDR
It is found that as long as divergent selection is relatively strong, selection against migrants can make a substantial contribution to EDRI in less than 30 generations. Expand
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
The role of selection and gene flow in the evolution of sexual isolation in Timema walking sticks and other Orthopteroids
TLDR
Variation among groups might reflect the degree to which different groups are intimately associated with their food resources, the types of traits used in mate choice, and how the geographic arrangement of populations affects the opportunity for reinforcement. 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. Expand
Implications for the Evolution of Prezygotic Isolation in Sympatry and Beyond
TLDR
Data is reviewed on the genetic basis of female preferences, connections between prezygotic isolation between species and within-species sexual selection, and the role of habitat versus mate preference in reinforcement, why they are important for understanding 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.

SPECIATION BY REINFORCEMENT OF PREMATING ISOLATION
  • L. Liou, T. Price
  • Biology, Medicine

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
Host-plant adaptation drives the parallel evolution of reproductive isolation
TLDR
It is reported that divergent selection for host adaptation, and not genetic drift, has promoted the parallel evolution of sexual isolation in this species, a clear demonstration that host-plant adaptation can play a crucial and repeatable role in the early stages of speciation. Expand

TLDR
The formation of new species must involve the evolution of barriers to gene flow within existing species, but how these barriers arise remains a problem and recent studies suggest serious limitations on the efficacy of reinforcing selection and a lack of well-substantiated examples. Expand

TLDR
Results indicate that morphological divergence in T. cristinae reflects a balance between the effects of host‐specific natural selection and gene flow, and that data on mating preferences can help determine the causal associations between trait divergence and levels of gene flow. Expand

A method for isolating and evaluating the contribution of host plant‐related natural selection pressures to the reproductive isolation between allopatric herbivore populations is offered. Expand
A sexually selected character displacement in flycatchers reinforces premating isolation
TLDR
In populations where two species coexist, it is shown that female choice selects for a divergence in male plumage colour and that the resulting character displacement reduces the frequency of hybridization. Expand

A model of reinforcement in a hybrid zone is developed in which an allele causing reinforcement may only be favored in the center of the hybrid zone and is selected against elsewhere. WhenExpand
Reproductive isolation caused by colour pattern mimicry
TLDR
It is shown that a shift in colour pattern mimicry was crucial in the origin of two butterfly species, and individuals from a population of H. melpomene allopatric to H. cydno court and mate with the sister species more readily than those from a sympatric population, suggesting that assortative mating has been enhanced in sympatry.

TLDR
The results suggest that females of D. pseudoobscura evolved increased sexual isolation from their sibling species, D. persimilis, by natural selection against maladaptive hybridization. Expand
