The role of molecular genetics in speciation studies.

  title={The role of molecular genetics in speciation studies.},
  author={Alan R. Templeton},
Systematists and population geneticists can both use molecular data sets to construct evolutionary trees (species and gene trees, respectively), and then use the resulting historical framework to test a variety of hypotheses. The greatest prospect for future advances in our understanding of speciation is to extend these historical approaches to the species/population interface, for only by straddling this interface can we actually study the processes involved in the origin of a new species… CONTINUE READING
