Ecologically dependent reproductive isolation (EDRI) is the decrease in gene flow that occurs when adaptive divergence reduces the fitness of individuals that move between ecological environments. A particularly simple and perhaps almost universal mechanism contributing to EDRI is natural selection against migrants themselves (i.e. before any selection against their offspring). Here I use single-locus and quantitative-genetic models to examine how quickly this mechanism can contribute to EDRI… 

Figures from this paper

Parasites can cause selection against migrants following dispersal between environments
TLDR
A role for parasites in selection against migrants and population diversification is supported, but the hypothesis of ‘natural enemy release’ is not supported.
GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION AND SELECTION AGAINST MIGRANTS IN EVOLUTIONARILY REPLICATED EXTREME ENVIRONMENTS
TLDR
Overall, reproductive isolation and genetic differentiation appear to be replicated and direct consequences of local adaptation to sulfide spring environments, but the relative contributions of different mechanisms of reproductive isolation vary across these evolutionarily independent replicates.
Strong extrinsic reproductive isolation between parapatric populations of an Australian groundsel.
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 consequences of phenotypic plasticity for ecological speciation
TLDR
It is found that adaptive plasticity evolves readily in the presence of dispersal between populations from different ecological environments and can either enhance or degrade the potential for divergent selection to form reproductive barriers.
The speed of ecological speciation.
TLDR
This work explores the possibility that reproductive isolation can evolve on ecological time-scales within dozens of generations, in theory and in nature, and examines few relevant studies.
Dynamics of genetic differentiation in experimental Drosophila metapopulations
TLDR
It is found that diversifying selection strongly reduces the efficiency of migration, and despite considerable migration, local populations become genetically isolated (‘isolation-by-adaptation’).
Natural and Sexual Selection Giveth and Taketh Away Reproductive Barriers: Models of Population Divergence in Guppies
TLDR
It is confirmed that divergent selection causes the appreciable evolution of male color within 20 generations and that sexual selection acting through female choice can strongly modify the effects of divergent natural selection and thereby alter the standard predictions of ecological speciation.
Natural and sexual selection against immigrants maintains differentiation among micro‐allopatric populations
TLDR
Both natural and sexual selection may contribute to isolation among parapatric populations, and selection against immigrants may be a powerful mechanism facilitating speciation among locally adapted populations even over very small spatial distances.
REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION CAUSED BY NATURAL SELECTION AGAINST IMMIGRANTS FROM DIVERGENT HABITATS
TLDR
The contributions of immigrant inviability to total reproductive isolation are quantified by examining study systems where multiple components of reproductive isolation have been measured and it is demonstrated that these contributions are frequently greater than those of traditionally recognized reproductive barriers.
PERSPECTIVE: REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION CAUSED BY NATURAL SELECTION AGAINST IMMIGRANTS FROM DIVERGENT HABITATS
Abstract The classification of reproductive isolating barriers laid out by Dobzhansky and Mayr has motivated and structured decades of research on speciation. We argue, however, that this

Reproductive isolation driven by the combined effects of ecological adaptation and reinforcement
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.
REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION CAUSED BY NATURAL SELECTION AGAINST IMMIGRANTS FROM DIVERGENT HABITATS

The contributions of immigrant inviability to total reproductive isolation are quantified by examining study systems where multiple components of reproductive isolation have been measured and it is demonstrated that these contributions are frequently greater than those of traditionally recognized reproductive barriers.
SPECIATION DESPITE GENE FLOW WHEN DEVELOPMENTAL PATHWAYS EVOLVE
Evolutionary biologists assume that species formation requires a drastic reduction in gene exchange between populations, but the rate sufficient to prevent speciation is unknown. To study speciation,
Reproductive isolation caused by visual predation on migrants between divergent environments

TLDR
Evidence that population divergence in cryptic coloration can also cause reproductive isolation is provided and data indicate that high rates of visual predation on less–cryptic migrants are likely to reduce encounters, and thus interbreeding, between host–associated populations.
DISRUPTIVE SELECTION ON HABITAT PREFERENCE AND THE EVOLUTION OF REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION: A SIMULATION STUDY
  • W. Rice

TLDR
It is suggested that environmental conditions which produce disruptive selection on habitat preference represent a special case in which sympatric speciation is particularly likely to occur.
Adaptive divergence and the evolution of reproductive isolation in the wild: an empirical demonstration using introduced sockeye salmon
TLDR
The demonstration that adaptive divergence can initiate reproductive isolation in populations of sockeye salmon introduced from a common ancestral source into a new lake system suggests that the first signs of ‘ecological speciation’ may appear soon after new environments are first colonized.
A GENETIC INTERPRETATION OF ECOLOGICALLY DEPENDENT ISOLATION
TLDR
A quantitative genetic model of Lynch (1991) is expanded to include two parental environments and it is revealed that by using both backcrosses in both parental environments, environment‐specific additive genetic effects can be estimated while correcting for any intrinsic genetic isolation.

TLDR
This paper investigates the situation where hybrids are selected against for ecological reasons, for example when there is no niche for individuals that are phenotypically intermediate between the parental species.
On the origin of species by sympatric speciation
TLDR
This work uses multilocus genetics to describe sexual reproduction in an individual-based model and considers the evolution of assortative mating, which leads to reproductive isolation between ecologically diverging subpopulations and conforms well with mounting empirical evidence for the sympatric origin of many species.
Rapid parapatric speciation on holey adaptive landscapes
TLDR
It is demonstrated that rapid speciation on the time–scale of hundreds of generations is plausible without the need for extreme founder events, complete geographic isolation, the existence of distinct adaptive peaks or selection for local adaptation, and the plausibility of speciation is enhanced by population subdivision.
