About this book

This collection of papers discusses burgeoning genetic, evolutionary, and ecological approaches to understanding the origins of mating discrimination and causes of premating reproductive isolation both within and between species.


Preface. Divergence in mate choice systems: does evolution play by rules? W.J. Etges. Recombination and the divergence of hybridizing species; D. Ortiz-Barrientos, J. Reiland, J. Hey, M.A.F. Noor. The evolution of hybrid infertility: perpetual coevolution between gender-specific and sexually antagonistic genes; W.R. Rice, A.K. Chippindale. Modelling the evolution of female choice strategies under inbreeding conditions; K. Reinhold. Single gene mutations in Drosophila: what can they tell us about the evolution of sexual behaviour? C.P.

Haerty, J.M. Jallon, J. Rouault, C. Bazin, P. Capy. Genetics of sexual isolation based on courtship song between two sympatric species: Drosophila ananassae and D. pallidosa; H. Yamada, M.

Divergence and reproductive isolation in the early stages of speciation; T. Tregenza. Genetic and behavioral components of the cryptic species boundary between Laupala cerasina and L. kohalensis (Orthoptera: Gryllidae); T.C. Mendelson, K.L. Shaw. Domesticated birds as a model for the genetics of speciation by sexual selection; T.D. Price. Patterns of inheritance of mating signals in interspecific hybrids between sailfin and shortfin mollies (Poediluidae: Poecilia: Mollienesia); M.B. Ptacek. Variation in female mate choice within guppy populations: population divergence, multiple ornaments and the maintenance of polymorphism; R. Brooks. Sexual isolation and speciation in bacteria; F.M.
