Unformatted text preview: BIS2B Fall 2009 (Keen) Lecture 29 . Speciation III 18 November Examples of speciation; hybridization and ring species Students should be able to: Give examples of allopatric, parapatric and sympatric speciation including relevant forms of reproductive isolation and situations that favor positive assortative mating Explain how hybrid zones and ring species arise Discuss ways in which hybrid zones and ring species pose problems for biological pigeon-holes (species descriptions) Vicariant Geographic Isolation The rise of the Isthmus of Panama (3-5 MYA) shut off gene flow between the Pacific Ocean & Caribbean Sea Assume that the formation of the Isthmus did divide the two taxa. We see many different shrimp species on each side of the Isthmus. Could a cladogram help us find out whether the species formed before or after the Isthmus split the ancestor?
