Abstract Although reinforcement is ostensibly driven by selection against hybrids, there are often other components in empirical cases and theoretical models of reinforcement that may contribute to premating isolation. One of these components is local adaptation of a trait used in mate choice. I use several different comparisons to assess the roles that local adaptation and selection against hybrids may play in reinforcement models. Both numerical simulations of exact recursion equations and… Expand

Topics from this paper

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
Reinforcement and the Genetics of Hybrid Incompatibilities
TLDR
A general analytic model of reinforcement is derived to study the effects of sex linkage on reinforcement under three forms of selection against hybrids: one-locus, two- locus, and ecological incompatibilities and shows that the pattern of sex linking can have a large effect on the amount of reinforcement due to hybrid incompatibility. 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
REINFORCEMENT IN CHORUS FROGS: LIFETIME FITNESS ESTIMATES INCLUDING INTRINSIC NATURAL SELECTION AND SEXUAL SELECTION AGAINST HYBRIDS
  • E. Lemmon, A. Lemmon
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2010
TLDR
Fitness estimates of laboratory‐raised hybrids between the chorus frogs Pseudacris feriarum and PseudACris nigrita are presented and strong support for reinforcement as the force driving displacement in this system is found. 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
EFFECTS OF NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION ON ADAPTIVE POPULATION DIVERGENCE AND PREMATING ISOLATION IN A DAMSELFLY
TLDR
It is concluded that current and strong sexual selection promotes adaptive population divergence in this species and that premating sexual isolation may have arisen as a correlated response to divergent sexual selection. Expand
EFFECTS OF NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION ON ADAPTIVE POPULATION DIVERGENCE AND PREMATING ISOLATION IN A DAMSELFLY
Abstract The relative strength of different types of directional selection has seldom been compared directly in natural populations. A recent meta‐analysis of phenotypic selection studies in naturalExpand
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
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
Limits to the evolution of assortative mating by female choice under restricted gene flow
  • M. Servedio
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
  • 2010
TLDR
It is found that a weakening in the effective strength of sexual selection with strong assortment leads to the existence of both a peak level of trait differentiation and the evolution of an intermediate level of assortative mating that will cause that peak. 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. Expand
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. Expand

  • M. Servedio

TLDR
It is argued that a combination of ecological character displacement and sensory bias can cause direct selection on preferences that results in the pattern of reproductive character displacement, and postmating, prezygotic factors may place strong selection on preference divergence. Expand
REINFORCEMENT AND THE GENETICS OF NONRANDOM MATING
  • M. Servedio

  • 2000
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
Speciation by Natural and Sexual Selection: Models and Experiments
TLDR
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.

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. 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
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
CAN GENE FLOW PREVENT REINFORCEMENT?

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
A haploid analytical model of one population that receives gene flow from another shows that the assortment trait mean will not diverge from the immigrants unless there is direct selection on the trait favouring it to do so or there are genes of very large effect. Expand
