In Genetic Mechanisms of Speciation in Insects , … Adopting this novel approach enabled us to find a consistent selection signal throughout the genus Drosophila, and a total of 1342 single-copy orthologous groups were identified with a putative signal of positive diversifying selection, corresponding to 1.9% of all loci. 32. This article is also available for rental through DeepDyve. Expected final online publication date for the Annual Review of Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics Volume 48 is November 2, 2017. Here, we present morphological, behavioral, genetic, and geologic data from a young subterranean insect lineage in lava tube caves on Hawai‘i Island. Inside this widely debatable area, the most discussable questions concern the driving forces of population differentiation and the role of geographical isolation as a factor of species divergence (allopatric vs. sympatric scenarios). If you originally registered with a username please use that to sign in. Comparisons between the sympatric Hawaii species pair, D. silvestris and D. heteroneura, and between the allopatric 'Maui' species pair, D. planitibia and D. differens, gave mean similarity values of 0.875 and 0.869 respectively. 2011). Examples are presented in support of this view. Support for the role of sexual selection in speciation has grown over the last 30 years. What they discovered were elaborate and bizarre mating rituals. These novelties are examined in this book in relation to their significance for evolution, emphasizing their human relevance. Within these subclusters most dissimilar species are those most likely to have been founded by small numbers of individuals. We conclude that although there is ample evidence that sexual selection contributes to the speciation process, it is very likely to do so only in concert with natural selection. This is due to their elaborate mating displays and some kind of ethological isolation persisting among them. The Salivary Chromosomes of DROSOPHILA MICROMELANICA and DROSOPHILA … The field has not given adequate attention to the role that male competition, Darwin’s second mechanism of sexual selection, might also play in speciation. Acting on the same biological processes via different routes, positive diversifying selection has promoted diversity of functions and adaptive divergence. play a greater role.

Concepts such as sexual selection, genetic drift, and the Founder Principle appear to lend support to Muller's views that premating isolating mechanisms arise as by-products of natural selection in allopatry. For example, the small genomic differences between humans and chimps challenges our understanding of what makes us humans in terms of genetic differences. It is suggested that there is a range of mating types in both sexes and that differential selection between the two sexes, i.e. The manner by which male competition contributes to divergence in allopatry is a poorly understood yet compelling area of research; similar to female choice, male competition may be more likely to lead to speciation when working in concert with divergent ecology, and allopatry sets the stage for divergence among environments with reduced gene flow. 45 Citations; 92 Downloads; Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES) Abstract.

Drosophila made their way to the Hawaiian Islands and radiated into over 800 species. Thus, values of genetic similarity between species have limited phylogenetic significance unless supplemental evidence can define the kinds of founding and speciation events that have occurred during the evolution of a group of species. Hawaiian Drosophila offer an excellent model for adaptive evolution. Due to At least 700 species of Drosophilids on Hawaiian islands. This is particularly true for Drosophila flies, in which the number of sequenced species doubled recently. 2011; 58 (3):492–501. Classical concepts of sexual selection theory are reviewed and some, R. C. L. Perkins' influence on evolutionary research on the Hawaiian Drosophilidae is presented. The allozymic (allelic isozymic) variation encoded by fifteen loci was examined in sixteen species comprising the D. planitibia subgroup of the picture winged Hawaiian Drosophila . We are interested in elucidating the extent to which lekking Hawaiian Drosophila species have diverged from their continental counterparts, which engage in sexual behavior at communal food sources, with regard to the chemical communication systems that the flies employ. The purpose of this book is to show that whilst genome dynamism is providing new, and previously unanticipated, sources of variability, there is no reason to dismiss the role of natural selection as the leading mechanism that sorts out the adaptive potentialities. Banding patterns of polytene chromosomes allows phylogeny reconstruction: these and other data show that patterns of … The origin of species, the evolution of form and the evolutionary impact of transposable elements are just a few of the many processes that have been revolutionized by ongoing genome studies. of speciation mechanisms. Boake CR. Thus, these results indicate that a substantial degree of genetic differentiation occurs during the first stage of speciation, but little change is required during the second stage when reproductive isolation is being completed. As a result, by mating super-males with choosy females, we were able to produce the high-line strain; similarly, for the low line, we mated poor males with indiscriminate females and we had a strain that was significantly different from our standard strain within just two generations of selection, i.e., morphological trait differences were measured between the standard strain and the two selected lines, which indicated that mating discrimination has affected secondary sexual traits of the low-line strain significantly: Cilia number on the foretibia of low-line males is significantly different from that of the standard line, which perhaps was the indication of incipient speciation in Hawaiian Drosophila. Phylogenetic relationships in the spoon tarsus subgroup of Hawaiian Drosophila: Conflict and concordance between gene trees. S. Via found a precise image-bearing expression for the sympatric model: “The Ugly Duckling”. Not just typical little fruit flies either: large body size, dramatic "picture wing" species, some with "hammer-head" shaped heads. BackgroundWithin genus Drosophila, the endemic Hawaiian species offer some of the most dramatic examples of morphological and behavioral evolution. Crossref . By crossing closely related but geographically isolated species, biologists have, among other things, studied the sexual behavior of the flies. Elysse M. Craddock, Speciation Processes in the Adaptive Radiation of Hawaiian Plants and Animals, Evolutionary Biology, 10.1007/978-1-4615-4185-1, (1-53), (2000). Here, we review the main influential theoretical works and experimental evidence regarding the validity of sympatric model. 3. Our study, one of the largest and most comprehensive ones on genome-wide positive diversifying selection to date, shows that positive diversifying selection has promoted species-specific differentiation among evolutionary lineages throughout the Drosophila radiation. Such a hypothesis, if valid, permits inferences of direction of evolution among closely related species. Isolation barriers work at different instances during the mating process in odonate insects. Concepts such as sexual selection, genetic drift, and the Founder Principle appear to lend support to Muller's views that premating isolating mechanisms arise as by-products of natural selection in allopatry. Ethological isolation among four species of Hawaiian Drosophila, differens (Molokai), planitibia (Maui), heteroneura (Hawaii), and silvestris (Hawaii), is measured in 'male-choice' experiments. In territorial damselflies, heterospecific interactions are mainly precluded by sexual (visual) isolation, while in non-territorial damselflies, heterospecific interactions are mostly precluded by mechanical isolation and sexual (tactile) isolation. More than 550 have been described (Lapoint, Gidaya, & O'Grady, 2011; O'Grady et al., 2011). Tait was the Program Director, Supplemental Instruction in Science and Mathematics, San Francisco State University. The ever-increasing knowledge of whole genome sequences is unveiling a variety of new structures and mechanisms that impinge on current evolutionary theory. 2001, Salzburger et al. 2000;Gockel et al. Such diversity is mainly driven by sexual selection. Accordingly, we have analyzed flies from three closely related Hawaiian Drosophila species in the adiastola subgroup. We conducted sexual selection experiments to produce strains with high and low mating discrimination in females of laboratory strains of Hawaiian Drosophila, Based on the premise that founder events are the most important mechanism of speciation in the Hawaiian Drosophila, Kaneshiro (1983) proposed models suggesting the importance of sexual selection in driving species proliferation in these insects. Christine R. B. Boake, Sexual Selection and Speciation in Hawaiian Drosophila, Behavior Genetics, 10.1007/s10519-005-3221-4, 35, 3, (297-303), (2005). The two latter species are chromosomally monomorphic, whereas the two Hawaii species are both polymorphic, with the single inversion polymorphism of D. heteroneura being shared by D. silvestris. 2000;Robinson et al. The central theme of these papers concerns the hypothesis that asymmetries in mate preference experiments may (or may not) provide a basis for predicting the direction of evolution among a group of closely related species or even among geographical populations within a single species. How closely do the genes of an organism track the outer physical and organic properties of the ecosystem? Determinations of genetic similarities among species reveals a range of values from 0.11 to 0.99. In view of the substantial isolation of these oceanic islands from con-tinental land masses, it is believed that the present-day fauna may have been derived from a single successful founder, or perhaps from two … Join ResearchGate to discover and stay up-to-date with the latest research from leading experts in, Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. In order to do this, we screened out super-males which mated successfully with females and with high mating records; and poor males which usually could not mate successfully with females and had low mating records. More than 500 species are reported in Hawaiian islands, and there is considerable diversity in behavior and morphology. Kenneth Y. Kaneshiro, Speciation in the Hawaiian Drosophila: Sexual selection appears to play an important role, BioScience, Volume 38, Issue 4, April 1988, Pages 258–263, https://doi.org/10.2307/1310849. The Hawaiian Drosophila are an iconic example of sequential colonization, adaptive radiation and speciation on islands. Our results suggest that sexual (visual) selection may be an important force driving speciation in non-territorial species. The endemic Drosophilid fauna of the Hawaiian archipelago have recently undergone extensive speciation (Carson et al. Asymmetrical sexual isolation among groups of related species, especially in the genus Drosophila,has been the focus of a series of recent papers (Kaneshiro, 1976, 1980, 1983; Kaneshiro and Kurihara, 1981; Watanabe and Kawanishi, 1979, 1981, 1983; Wasserman and Koepfer, 1980; Markow, 1981; Arita and Kaneshiro, 1979; Ahearn, 1980; Powell, 1978; Ohta, 1978; Giddings and Templeton, 1983; Dodd and Powell, 1985). The second stage occurs after sympatry when reproductive isolation is being completed. 1960 Jun; 46 (6):842–859. The average amounts of genetic differentiation, D, between populations are for each level as follows: geographic populations, 0.031 ± 0.007; subspecies, 0.230 ± 0.016; semispecies, 0.226 ± 0.033; sibling species, 0.581 ± 0.039; morphologically different species, 1.056 ± 0.068. There is marked population subdivision within the species, and the western 'Kona' populations are strongly divergent from the remaining populations. taxonomic treatment of the group and some of the ecological novelties of the group are discussed. The two pairs of species are more strongly differentiated, i.e. In this study we investigated the strength of three premating barriers (visual, mechanical and tactile), genetic divergence and degree of sympatry (on their entire distribution) between four non-territorial Argia damselflies (A. anceps, A. extranea, A. oenea and A. tezpi). Genetic and phenotypic analysis of closely related species pairs that exhibit incomplete reproductive isolation can provide insights into the mechanisms of speciation.

Examples are presented in support of this view and in contrast to that held by Fisher and Dobzhansky, who envisioned such mechanisms as arising upon recontact of populations in which some postmating isolating mechanism had arisen. On the average about 0.23 allelic substitutions per locus have accumulated in the separate evolutions of the subspecies. D may be interpreted as the number of electrophoretically detectable allelic substitutions per locus that have accumulated during the evolution of two taxa since they separated from a common ancestor. One can hardly find a more controversial issue in evolution biology than species concept. The authors studied allelic variation at 36 gene loci coding for enzymes in natural populations of 14 taxa of the Drosophila willistoni group. 2000;Gilchrist et al. 2002;Kennington et al.
