- Sticklebacks breed into separate species before scientists' very eyes
- It turned out these fish were able to undergo sympatric speciation because the differences between the two fish types are on the parts of chromosomes that are less likely to undergo recombination, or be mixed up when two types of fish mate.
- Complete ecological isolation and cryptic diversity in Polynucleobacter
- Theoretically, loss and acquisition of a few genes restricting distribution of a population to a certain habitat type (pH range) could drive speciation in PnecC bacteria. Another barrier to gene ....
- Super-fast evolving fish splitting into two species in same lake
- This kind of speciation, known as sympatry, was once thought to be extremely unlikely, says Chris Bird of Texas A&M University Corpus Christi, who studies how organisms are evolving by analysing their genomes.
- The origin of a species
- Dr Davies and his colleagues studied the Prdm9 gene: this gene is already known to have a role in infertility in mice from different species, and is in fact the only known speciation gene in mammals. However, how speciation ...
- Scientists prove key aspect of evolutionary theory
- "Since then, mutations have built up and the lack of sexual recombination in T.b. gambiense means that the two chromosomes in each pair have evolved independently of each other, demonstrating the Meselson effect.
