B.biological species concept bb? Sympatric speciation from… Development of polyploidy/hybridization Disruptive natural selection Nonrandom mating (assertive mating/sexual selection) Iclicker: polyploidy is most common in: A. plants development of polyploidy/ hybridization ***Mainly seen in ___ plants _______*** _____ Polyploidy ____ is…. the only known mode of _ instantaneous _speciation by a single genetic event. the only mode of sympatric speciation that is _ widely accepted as common ____ Among ~300,000 species of land plants, 2-4% derived from polyploidization ____ Hybridization ______… if get viable and fertile ____ hybrids ____ can get zones of __ hybridization ___ where the genotype/phenotype varies from both parental species. if this occurs in unique habitat, can get __ hybrids ___ that are better adapted than either parent, and result in new species.
