A species may overlap with a mosaic of species across its geographic range. Many types of species interaction cause selection on mating traits, but their role in generating within-species divergence has been neglected. The pattern of reproductive character displacement (RCD) has been classically attributed to reinforcement, a process driven by selection against hybridisation. Recent reinforcement research shows that sexual isolation can result between displaced and non-displaced populations. We… Expand
Phylo-comparative analyses reveal the dual role of drift and selection in reproductive character displacement
TLDR
It is shown how the phylo-comparative method together with genomic data can be used to evaluate evolutionary processes at the population level in closely related species and quantify the amount of drift and selection necessary for RCD to lead to speciation. 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
Reproductive Character Displacement Drives Diversification of Male Courtship Songs in Drosophila
TLDR
The widespread pattern of character displacement implies that allopatric divergence due to processes like sexual selection are very slow relative to sympatric processes such as reinforcement and reproductive interference in driving song diversification across Drosophila. 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
Reinforcement generates reproductive isolation between neighbouring conspecific populations of spadefoot toads
TLDR
Female mate preferences in, and gene flow between, neighbouring populations of spadefoot toads that did and did not occur with heterospecifics (mixed- and pure-species populations, respectively) are compared and character displacement (and, more specifically, reinforcement) may initiate reproductive isolation between conspecific populations that differ in interactions with heterosaurs. Expand
Reinforcement targets sexual or postmating prezygotic reproductive barriers depending on species abundance and population history
TLDR
The findings show that interspecies interactions have far-reaching effects on strengthening species barriers and promoting speciation. Expand
Mutation-order divergence by sexual selection: diversification of sexual signals in similar environments as a first step in speciation.
TLDR
It is argued that a mutation-order process could explain widespread diversity in secondary sexual traits among closely related, allopatric species. Expand
SPECIES RECOGNITION AND PATTERNS OF POPULATION VARIATION IN THE REPRODUCTIVE STRUCTURES OF A DAMSELFLY GENUS
TLDR
The results, taken with previous studies, suggest that cerci shape is a primary feature used in species recognition used to discriminate conspecific from heterospecifics during mating. Expand
Reinforcement in plants.
  • R. Hopkins
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The New phytologist
  • 2013
TLDR
This work discusses how all three strategies for the investigation of the process of reinforcement find evidence consistent with reinforcement occurring in plants, and focuses largely on case studies, and uses research on Phlox drummondii to illustrate the importance of testing alternative hypotheses. 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

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
Sexual selection and natural selection in bird speciation
TLDR
It is concluded that perhaps the main role for sexual selection in speciation is in generating differences between populations in traits, and sexual selection is likely to have an important role in generating premating isolating mechanisms throughout an adaptive radiation. 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
Sexual conflict and speciation.

  • Biology, Medicine

TLDR
It is tentatively predicted that sexual conflict will typically result in a higher rate of speciation in ' female-win' clades, that females will be responsible for premating isolation through reinforcement, and that 'female- win' populations will be less genetically diverse. Expand
Evolutionary Branching and Sympatric Speciation Caused by Different Types of Ecological Interactions
TLDR
It is shown that evolution under branching conditions selects for assortativeness and thus allows sexual populations to escape from fitness minima and concludes that evolutionary branching offers a general basis for understanding adaptive speciation and radiation under a wide range of different ecological conditions.

TLDR
Sympatric populations display suboptimal phenotypes relative to their allopatric conspecifics, and the combination of reinforcement and sexual selection can generate divergence in female preferences and male display traits. Expand
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.

Are Traits That Experience Reinforcement Also Under Sexual Selection?
TLDR
It is shown that the strength of reinforcing selection in natural populations is sufficient to generate reproductive character displacement along a 36‐km transect across the contact between sympatric and allopatric populations of D. serrata, and that male attractiveness within D.serrata may be compromised by reinforcing selection, preventing the spread of sympatrics‐like blends to the area of allop atry.
