A key tool in evolutionary ecology is information about the temporal dynamics of species over time. Paleontology has long been the major source of this information, however, a very different source of temporal data resides in the variation of genes within and between species. These data provide an independent way to date species divergence but can also uniquely reveal processes such as gene introgression between species and demographic isolation within species. Genetic tools are particularly… CONTINUE READING
