Several theories argue that large changes in allele frequencies through genetic drift after a small founding population becomes allopatrically isolated can lead to significant changes in reproductive isolation and thus trigger the origin of new species. For this reason, founder speciation has been proposed as a potent force in the generation of new species. Nonetheless, the relative importance of such ‘founder effects’ remains largely untested. In this report, I used experimental evolution to… Expand
Population history and the differential consequences of inbreeding and outcrossing in a plant metapoplation
TLDR
The findings show that isolation and historical variation in population size likely contribute substantial variation in past inbreeding and the consequences of future inbreeding across the metapopulation of the plant Silene latifolia. Expand
An island‐hopping bird reveals how founder events shape genome‐wide divergence
TLDR
It is shown that multiple founder events do not result in divergence and diversity levels seen in evolutionary older subspecies, and therefore do not provide a shortcut to speciation as proposed by founder‐effect speciation models. Expand
Founder effects on trans-generational dynamics of closed inbreeding lineages of the predatory mite Phytoseiulus persimilis
TLDR
This prediction that distant out-breeding should provide for favorable demographic founder effects in isolated populations is tested in isolated experimental lineages founded by females mated to a sibling, a male from the same population or amale from another population and monitored lineage growth and persistence over four generations. Expand
Establishment of F1 hybrid mortality in real time
TLDR
This work reports the very recent spread and fixation of complete asymmetric F1 hybrid mortality within eight years of laboratory maintenance in the insect model Nasonia, a unique case whereby a strong asymmetrical isolation barrier evolved in real time. Expand
Genetic divergence and the number of hybridizing species affect the path to homoploid hybrid speciation
TLDR
It is found that populations of hybrids formed by parental species with intermediate levels of divergence were more likely to mate assortatively, and discriminate against their parental species, than those generated from weakly or strongly diverged parental species. Expand
Realised Niche Shifts, Rapid Evolution and Phenotypic Plasticity in Introduced Plants
TLDR
Overall, climate niche shifts did not predict trait change through time, suggesting that climate may not be the predominant driver of trait change in plants introduced to Australia and New Zealand. Expand
Revisiting the vanishing refuge model of diversification
TLDR
Predictions for populations undergoing divergence according to the vanishing refuge model are provided that encompass habitat dynamics, phylogeography, and phenotypic differentiation across populations, and this model was applied to a lizard species, Coleodactylus meridionalis, to test for divergence between coastal and inland populations in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil. Expand
The roles of geography and founder effects in promoting host‐associated differentiation in the generalist bogus yucca moth Prodoxus decipiens
TLDR
Results suggest that the interplay of local adaptation, geography and demography can determine the tempo of HAD, and argue that future studies should include comprehensive surveys across a wide range of environmental and geographic conditions to elucidate the contribution of various processes to HAD. Expand
The Past and Future of Experimental Speciation.
TLDR
It is argued that, despite its promise to elucidate the evolution of reproductive isolation, experimental speciation has been underutilised and lags behind other contributions to speciation research. Expand
Complex processes of cryptic speciation in mouse lemurs from a micro-endemism hotspot in Madagascar
TLDR
This study focuses on a conservation hotspot in northeastern Madagascar where at least five species of mouse lemur occur, some of them in sympatry, and describes one of them, M. jonahi, as new to science and is accompanied by a complete genome. Expand

TLDR
Although rare, founder speciation can have a disproportionate importance in adaptive innovation and radiation, and examples are given to show that "rare" does not mean "unimportant" in evolution. Expand
The theory of speciation via the founder principle.
TLDR
The genetic transilience model is used to explain several features of the evolution of the Hawaiian Drosophila, and experimental designs are outlined to test the major predictions of the theory. Expand
Genetic Revolutions, Founder Effects, and Speciation
TLDR
It is argued that, although founder effects may cause speciation under sufficiently stringent conditions, they are only one extreme of a continuous range of possibilities, and divergence may be driven in a variety of ways, without the need for drastic external changes. Expand

TLDR
Character change in adaptation and speciation may, in some instances, be promoted by founder events that release new variance through the disruption of covariance matrices that underlie and interrelate quantitative traits. Expand

On the Evolution of Premating Isolation after a Founder Event
TLDR
It is argued that premates reproductive isolation is more efficient than postmating reproductive isolation in maintaining the integrity of sympatric species and that after a founder event a new adaptive combination of genes may rise to high frequencies in the presence of an old combinations of genes.

Quantitative genetic effects of bottlenecks: experimental evidence from a wild plant species, Nigella degenii.
TLDR
The results suggest that bottlenecked populations of N. degenii generally have a lower adaptive potential than the ancestral population but also highlight the idiosyncratic nature of bottleneck effects. Expand
Bottlenecks, population differentiation and apparent selection at microsatellite loci in Australian Drosophila buzzatii
TLDR
It is concluded that linkage disequilibria may be far more common in natural populations than is generally assumed, and the loci apparently affected by selection may well be marking selection in large genome regions including many loci that are not necessarily closely linked. Expand

TLDR
The novel environment did not cause the evolution of any premating isolation and it reduced the likelihood of speciation through its effects on male mating success, both as a plastic response to this environment and as a result of environment-dependent inbreeding effects in the bottlenecked populations.
