Current geography masks dynamic history of gene flow during speciation in northern Australian birds

Peñalba, Joshua; Joseph, Leo; Moritz, Craig


Genome divergence is greatly influenced by gene flow during early stages of speciation. As populations differentiate, geographic barriers can constrain gene flow and so affect the dynamics of divergence and speciation. Current geography, specifically disjunction and continuity of ranges, is often used to predict the historical gene flow during the divergence process. We test this prediction in eight meliphagoid bird species complexes codistributed in four regions. These regions are separated by...[Show more]
