Critical tests of the origin of pre-zygotic isolation are indispensable in as large of array of taxa as possible to contribute to understanding the process of speciation and the evolutionary future of hybrid zones between parapatric species.

SELECTION FOR SEXUAL ISOLATION BETWEEN GEOGRAPHIC FORMS OF DROSOPHILA MOJAVENSIS. I. INTERACTIONS BETWEEN THE SELECTED FORMS

Drosophila mojavensis comprises three geographic forms occurring in the United States, the Baja California peninsula, and mainland Mexico, and response to selection was highly asymmetrical in that isolation was very high between selected peninsular males and mainland females, but nonexistent between selected mainland males andPeninsular females.

LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS ON SPECIATION: WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED IN 40 YEARS?

The role of geographical separation in generating allopatry has been overemphasized in the past and its role in generating diminished gene flow in combination with strong, discontinuous, and multifarious divergent selection, has been largely unappreciated.

Fourth Report on Natural Selection for the Origin of Reproductive Isolation

The outcome of enforced togetherness, within the limits of genetic variability contained among the strains, should be an enhanced reproductive isolation, a reluctance to mate with individuals of the opposite sex when the product of such mating is sterile offspring.

MECHANISMS OF SPECIATION­ A POPULATION GENETIC APPROACH

The purpose of this review is to initiate the discussion absent in White's (234) book and much of the speciation literature and outline why it is important for population genetics and speciation theory to become integrated.

Speciation by Natural and Sexual Selection: Models and Experiments

It is shown that the geographical context of speciation can be viewed as a form of assortative mating and this provides a framework for interpreting results from laboratory experiments, which are found to agree generally with theoretical predictions about conditions that are favorable to the evolution of prezygotic isolation.

DISRUPTIVE SELECTION AND ASSORTATIVE MATING IN TRIBOLIUM CASTANEUM

Experimental studies of disruptive selection have shown that disruptive selection can increase phenotypic and genetic variability, and under what circumstances can disruptive selection lead to prezygotic reproductive isolation.

Some approaches to the question of Drosophila laterality

The results of courtship studies in D. paulistorum and melanogaster indicate that, although individual members of a strain may be entirely right or left dominant, the majority of individuals are ambidextrous.

Components of fitness in a compound chromosome strain of Drosophila melanogaster

The relative net fitness of a compound chromosome strain of Drosophila melanogaster was about 0.05, compared with the chromosomally normal strain from which it was derived, apparently due to assortative mating, in which normal females discriminated strongly against compound males.

More on Natural Selection for the Origin of Reproductive Isolation

The isolation index, indicative of the degree of evolving sexual isolation, has clearly been enhanced and is now higher than previously reported.

Natural Selection for the Origin of Reproductive Isolation

It is shown that, by means of selection over a period of some 70 generations, ethological isolation can be constructed where none had existed previous to initiation of selection for it.

GENOTYPE FREQUENCY AND MATING SUCCESS IN THE WILLISTONI SPECIES GROUP OF DROSOPHILA

Mating advantage of rare genotypes was found not only for mutants but also for carriers of different gene arrangements, strains of different geographic origin, and even for flies of the same strain grown at two different temperatures.

Genetic analysis of the proximal region of chromosome 2 of Drosophila melanogaster. I. Detachment products of compound autosomes.

Analysis by inter se complementation, pseudo-dominance tests with proximal mutations and allelism tests with known deficiencies provided evidence for at least two loci between the centromere and the light locu in 2L and one locus in 2R between the rolled locus and the Centromere, demonstrating functional genetic loci are found in heterochromatin, albeit at low density.

Genes and Gene Complexes

It is fortunate that Mendel, by having chosen to work on peas, failed to discover “gene conversion” not to mention “meiotic drive,” for he might then have failed to deduce even the first law.

Compound autosomes in Drosophila melanogaster: The meiotic behavior of compound thirds.

It is proposed that nonhomologous (distributive) pairing is a property of the centromeric region and suggested that rearrangements involving breaks in this region possibly alter the effectiveness of distributive pairing forces.
