The magnitude of the island of genetic differentiation surrounding a strong, prezygotic reproductive isolating barrier.

Martin, Jessica.

Abstract: Numerous studies have observed regions of elevated genetic differentiation (islands) when comparing the genomes of incipient species. The mechanisms that lead to the formation of these islands nor their basic characteristics (length, frequency, distribution) are well understood. One hypothesis is that islands of elevated genetic differentiation form around loci that encode reproductive i... read more
