Parapatric speciation across sharp ecological gradients is an alternative to the more usual allopatric model as both a general explanation of organismal diversification and as an explicit statement regarding differentiation of tropical forest biotas (Endler, 1977, 1982a, 1982b). The relevance of this model to species of small mammals distributed across a 3,000 meter gradient on the eastern flank of the Peruvian Andes is examined here by phylogenetic analysis of comparative mitochondrial DNA… CONTINUE READING
