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 a broad range of conditions: when the average male display trait on the island and continent differ, when the preference acts on that difference, and when there is standing genetic variance for the preference. A difference between the mean display trait on the continent and on the island is sufficient… Expand
REINFORCEMENT AND SEX LINKAGE
TLDR
It is found that reinforcement can lead to complete reproductive isolation in some cases but not others and that the mode of inheritance can determine which outcome occurs, and the effect ofMode of inheritance on reinforcement is poorly predicted by its effect on the genetic correlation between the male trait and female preference.

Reinforcement and divergence under assortative mating
  • M. Kirkpatrick

  • 2000
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
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
Reinforcement during ecological speciation
  • M. Kirkpatrick
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B: Biological Sciences
  • 2001
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
Conflict over fertilization underlies the transient evolution of reinforcement
TLDR
A population genetic model of interspecific conflict over reinforcement, inspired by ‘gametophytic factors’, is developed, which demonstrates that this conflict results in the transient evolution of reinforcement – after female preference for a conspecific gamete trait rises to high frequency, male traits adaptively introgress into the other population.

THE EVOLUTION OF PREMATING ISOLATION: LOCAL ADAPTATION AND NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION AGAINST HYBRIDS
  • M. Servedio
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2004
TLDR
It is found that selection against hybrids may play a small role in driving preference evolution in a reinforcement model where the mating cue is separate from loci causing hybrid incompatibilities. Expand
Pervasive reinforcement and the role of sexual selection in biological speciation.
TLDR
It is shown that in birds, divergence in song and plumage in allopatry corresponds poorly with whether species mate assortatively in hybrid zones and argued that many other factors besides trait divergence affect propensity to hybridize, including rarity of conspecific mates and choice based on territory rather than male traits. Expand
The Genetics of Speciation by Reinforcement
TLDR
It is shown that reinforced mating discrimination is inherited as a dominant trait, exhibits variability within species, and may be influenced by a known set of candidate genes involved in olfaction, the first high-resolution genetic study of variation within species for female mating discrimination that is enhanced by natural selection. 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.

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.

SPECIATION BY REINFORCEMENT OF PREMATING ISOLATION
  • L. Liou, T. Price
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1994
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
GOOD GENES AND DIRECT SELECTION IN THE EVOLUTION OF MATING PREFERENCES
  • M. Kirkpatrick
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1996
TLDR
Results suggest that the good genes process generates only weak indirect selection on preferences, with an effective selection intensity of a few percent or less, and direct selection of preference genes may play an important role in species that show extreme sexual selection. Expand
THE EFFECTS OF GENE FLOW ON REINFORCEMENT
TLDR
The results suggest that the speciation of a peripheral isolate, which undergoes essentially one‐way migration, may be difficult to complete if secondary contact occurs before reproductive isolation is fully developed. Expand
Natural and sexual selection on many loci.
TLDR
The general results support the previous observation that these indirect selection forces are so weak that they are unlikely to dominate the evolution of preference-producing loci. Expand

TLDR
A quantitative expression for the force of indirect selection that applies to any female mating behavior, is relatively insensitive to the underlying genetics, and is based on measurable quantities suggests that the evolutionary force generated by indirect selection on preferences is weak in absolute terms.

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

The models elucidate genetic mechanisms that can initiate or contribute to rapid speciation by sexual isolation and divergence of secondary sexual characters in polygamous species. Expand
