Mating occurs on the larval host plant in all Rhagoletis species Diptera: Tephritidae. We show how this attribute, when coupled with certain differences in other biological traits, strongly influences the mode of speciation. In species of the suavis species group, host shifts have never occurred during speciation, and larvae feed in the husks of any walnut species Juglans spp. Taxa are allopatric or parapatric and exhibit deep phylogenetic nodes suggesting relatively ancient speciation events. Traits responsible for species and mate recognition, particularly in parapatric species, are morphologically distinct and strongly sexually dimorphic.
Alexey S. Kondrashov, Mikhail V. Mina, Sympatric speciation: when is it possible? This paper is written to compare the results of theoretical investigations of sympatric speciation with the relevant experimental data. We understand sympatric speciation as a formation of species out of a population whose spatial structure is not important genetically. A necessary prerequisite for speciation is an action of disruptive selection on sufficiently polymorphic traits.
Sympatric speciation is the evolution of a new species from a surviving ancestral species while both continue to inhabit the same geographic region. In evolutionary biology and biogeography , sympatric and sympatry are terms referring to organisms whose ranges overlap so that they occur together at least in some places. If these organisms are closely related e. Sympatric speciation is one of three traditional geographic modes of speciation. In this case, divergence is facilitated by the absence of gene flow. Parapatric speciation is the evolution of geographically adjacent populations into distinct species. In this case, divergence occurs despite limited interbreeding where the two diverging groups come into contact.
Speciation can take place in two general ways. A single species may change over time into a new form that is different enough to be considered a new species. This process is known as anagenesis. More commonly, a species may become split into two groups that no longer share the same gene pool. This process is known as cladogenesis. There are several ways in which anagenesis and cladogenesis may take place.
Three types of genes have been proposed to promote sympatric speciation: habitat preference genes, assortative mating genes and habitat-based fitness genes. Previous computer models have analysed these genes separately or in pairs. In this paper we describe a multilocus model in which genes of all three types are considered simultaneously.
This page has been archived and is no longer updated. Discussion of most topics within Evolutionary Biology begins with Darwin. Darwin viewed evolution by natural selection as a very gradual mechanism of change within populations, and postulated that new species could be the product of this very same process, but over even longer periods of time. This eventual process of speciation by natural selection is illustrated by a sketch drawn by Darwin in his personal notebook nearly 20 years before the Origin of Species was published Figure 1.

In biology, two related species or populations are considered sympatric when they exist in the same geographic area and thus frequently encounter one another.
Plant species complexes are good systems to study the origin and maintenance of the high species diversity in the tropics because this diversity is due in large part to the presence of many large genera with recent closely related species. The study of speciation requires evidence of genetic and phenotypic differentiation of an original population into independent units. In this context, I have worked with two examples of plant speciation using palm Arecaceae species complexes of Western Amazonia as a model system. Sympatric divergence of the palm complex Geonoma macrostachys Mart.
Ecological speciation is a form of speciation arising from reproductive isolation that occurs due to an ecological factor that reduces or eliminates gene flow between two populations of a species. Ecological factors can include changes in the environmental conditions in which a species experiences, such as behavioral changes involving predation , predator avoidance, pollinator attraction, and foraging ; as well as changes in mate choice due to sexual selection or communication systems. Ecologically-driven reproductive isolation under divergent natural selection leads to the formation of new species. This has been documented in many cases in nature and has been a major focus of research on speciation for the past few decades. Ecological speciation has been defined in various ways to identify it as distinct from non-ecological forms of speciation.

Беккер прижал дуло к виску убийцы и осторожно наклонился. Одно движение, и он выстрелит. Но стрелять не понадобилось. Халохот был мертв. Беккер отшвырнул пистолет и без сил опустился на ступеньку.
