Speciation is how a new kind of plant or animal species is created. Speciation occurs when a group within a species separates from other members of its species and develops its own unique characteristics. The demands of a different environment or the characteristics of the members of the new group will differentiate the new species from their ancestors.
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. Ecological speciation can occur either in allopatry , sympatry , or parapatry. The only requirement being that speciation occurs as a result of adaptation to different ecological or micro-ecological conditions.
In biology, two related species or populations are considered sympatric when they exist in the same geographic area and thus frequently encounter one another. Sympatric species or taxa in secondary contact may or may not interbreed. Four main types of population pairs exist in nature. Sympatric populations or species contrast with parapatric populations, which contact one another in adjacent but not shared ranges and do not interbreed; peripatric species, which are separated only by areas in which neither organism occurs; and allopatric species, which occur in entirely distinct ranges that are neither adjacent nor overlapping. These may drive allopatric speciation , which is arguably the dominant mode of speciation. The lack of geographic isolation as a definitive barrier between sympatric species has yielded controversy among ecologists, biologists, and zoologists regarding the validity of the term. As such, researchers have long debated the conditions under which sympatry truly applies, especially with respect to parasitism.
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.
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. All aspects of their biology, genetics and distribution are consistent with a slow rate of allopatric speciation followed by morphological divergence in secondary contact.
We are interested in the allopatry vs. sympatry question because we would like to estimate the. degree to which speciation depends only on.
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. Our computer simulations show that speciation occurs in complete sympatry under a broad range of conditions. The process includes an initial diversification phase during which a slight amount of divergence occurs, a quasi-equilibrium phase of stasis during which little or no detectable divergence occurs and a completion phase during which divergence is dramatic and gene flow between diverging habitat morphs is rapidly eliminated.
Аукцион? - Сьюзан подняла. Стратмор кивнул: - Как раз сейчас японские компании скачивают зашифрованную версию Цифровой крепости и пытаются ее взломать. С каждой минутой, уходящей на эти бесплодные попытки, ее цена растет.
In allopatric speciation a physically barrier isolates a population, whereas sympatric speciation occur within a single geographical area and reproductive isolation.
Я не надеялся что-либо найти, но наткнулся на учетную запись абонента. - Он выдержал паузу. - Я, конечно, предположил, что это не та Северная Дакота, которую мы ищем, но на всякий случай проверил эту запись. Представь себе мое изумление, когда я обнаружил множество сообщений Энсея Танкадо. - Стратмор приподнял брови.
Выражение его лица тут же смягчилось. - Сьюзан, извини. Это кошмар наяву. Я понимаю, ты расстроена из-за Дэвида.
Он будет оставаться в таком состоянии, пока она не вернется и вновь не введет пароль. Затем Сьюзан сунула ноги в туфли и последовала за коммандером. - Какого черта ему здесь надо? - спросил Стратмор, как только они с Сьюзан оказались за дверью Третьего узла. - Как всегда, валяет дурака, - сказала Сьюзан.
