We explore the possibility that differences in the pattern of gene flow between populations may affect the evolution of reinforcement by comparing pairs of populations undergoing one‐way migration versus symmetric migration. The case of symmetric migration is modeled by a two‐island model, where the two populations exchange equal proportions of migrants each generation. One‐way migration is modeled by a continent‐island model, where migration is in one direction from a large continental… Expand

The reinforcement of mating preferences on an island.
We develop a haploid model for the reinforcement of female mating preferences on an island that receives migrants from a continent. We find that preferences will evolve to favor island males under aExpand
REINFORCEMENT AND THE GENETICS OF NONRANDOM MATING

TLDR
Reinforcement is found to occur more often under the preference model than the assortative mating model, thus reversing the trend from the two‐island models, and patterns of population subdivision may play a role in determining what types of premating isolation may evolve. Expand
The evolution of non-random movement along clines
TLDR
This work compares models in which evolutionary changes in theCline spread out to affect dynamics in core populations with models where core populations are insulated from changes that occur within the cline. Expand
The effects of sexual selection on trait divergence in a peripheral population with gene flow
TLDR
The effects that sexual selection, long hypothesized to drive the divergence of distinct traits used in mate choice, can play in the evolution of such traits in a partially isolated peripheral population are explored. Expand
Three Modes of Adaptive Speciation in Spatially Structured Populations
TLDR
This work incorporates both frequency-dependent competition and local adaptation into a single model and finds that the two mechanisms can operate together, leading to a third speciation mode in which speciation is initiated by selection against maladapted migrants but completed by within-deme competition in a distinct second phase. Expand
The effects of frequency-dependent sexual selection, mating-trait architecture and matching rule on hybrid zone dynamics in crows
TLDR
This study demonstrates that sexual selection created by assortative mating can explain steep transitions in mating-trait loci without generalizing to genome-wide reproductive isolation and further emphasizes the importance of mating-Trait architecture for spatio-temporal hybrid-zone dynamics. Expand
Divergent Outcomes of Reinforcement Speciation: The Relative Importance of Assortative Mating and Migration Modification
TLDR
The results reveal that assortative mating may evolve faster and under a broader range of biological conditions than migration modification, however, direct evolutionary interactions favor migration modification when populations experience strong divergent selection. Expand
Evolution with Stochastic Fitness and Stochastic Migration
TLDR
An exact equation for directional evolution is derived, essentially a stochastic Price equation with migration, that encompasses all processes contributing to directional change in an open population and shows that increasing the variance in migration rates reduces the impact of migration relative to selection. Expand
Mechanisms of reinforcement in natural and simulated polymorphic populations
TLDR
Congruence of the results for allele frequencies versus fixation probabilities suggests that similar patterns of reinforcement are expected during different stages of the speciation process. Expand
Migration-Selection Balance at Multiple Loci and Selection on Dominance and Recombination
TLDR
This novel method gives a close approximation to the simulation with all possible multilocus genotypes considered and finds that the modifiers of the (i) type are able to invade faster than the type (ii) modifier, however, this result only applies in the strong selection/low migration/low recombination scenario.

  • 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

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

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
A Theoretical Investigation of Speciation by Reinforcement
TLDR
A closer examination of the reinforcement model of speciation using a computer simulation reveals that there are a number of implicit assumptions necessary for reinforcement to work, suggesting that speciation by reinforcement is not nearly as prevalent as much of the biological literature suggests.

TLDR
A specific model is put forward in which mating behavior is determined by additive gene contributions in both sexes, and the strength of mating attraction is maximized when mating "scores" in the two sexes are equalized. 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.

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

  • R. Lande
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1982
TLDR
Mechanisms for clinal speciation first outlined in genetic terms by Fisher (1930) are reinvestigated and the latter mechanism is potentially much more powerful for initiating sexual isolation and character divergence along a cline than is selection against hybridization. Expand
Speciation as a Stage in Evolutionary Divergence
TLDR
A theory is suggested according to which the development of isolating mechanisms follows, rather than accompanies, that of the adaptive complexes themselves, which suggests that speciation is meant the fixation of discontinuity among organisms. Expand

Two genetic and molecular analyses suggest the presence of a major sterility factor from D. mauritiana, which is named Odysseus (Ods), in the cytological interval of 16D, and formalize three criteria for inferring the existence of amajor gene within an introgression. Expand
