Speciation — THE ANATOMY OF EVOLUTION
Speciation is the evolutionary process by which new and distinct species form. In speciation, the ancestral species splits into two or more descendant species that are genetically different from one another and can no longer interbreed. There are two major
Speciation – Introductory Biology: Evolutionary and …
Allopatric speciation (allo- = “other”; -patric = “homeland”) involves geographic separation of populations from a parent species and subsequent evolution. Sympatric speciation (sym- = “same”; -patric = “homeland”) involves speciation occurring within a parent species remaining in one location.
Speciation, or the process that results in new species, occurs when an ancestral population splits into two or more descendant species which are genetically distinct and unable to interbreed (per the biological species concept). Speciation is all about gene flow .

1.6: The Origins, Evolution, Speciation, Diversity and …
Repeated speciation occurs with the continual divergence of life forms from an ancestral cell through natural selection and evolution. Our shared cellular structures, nucleic acid, protein and metabolic chemistries (the ‘unity’ of life) supports our common ancestry with all life.
Abrupt speciation (Chapter 14)
The Princeton Guide to Evolution on JSTOR
Most studies of speciation have focused on the evolution of reproductive isolation or intrinsic barriers to gene exchange. Such barriers may result from a variety of trait differences, some of which are simply a by-product of divergence in allopatry. Barriers may
Ecological speciation is a form of speciation arising from reproductive isolation that occurs due to an ecological factor that reduces or eliminates gene flow between two populations of a species. Ecological factors can include changes in the environmental conditions

· We modelled the evolution of diversification rates across the fish tree by assuming that the phylogeny was shaped by a mixture of evolutionary processes of speciation, extinction and trait evolution.
Microevolution and Macroevolution: Speciation
· Sympatric speciation is the opposite of allopatric speciation because organisms, predominately plants, often create new species without the requisite geographic isolation. Plant-seed dispersal mechanisms often prohibit reproductive isolation, leaving sympatric speciation as the only major evolutionary cause agent for plants.

· Both sympatric and allopatric speciation events were described as shaping the family’s diversity with evidence for cryptic or hidden speciation also potentially occurring in this system 29.
Polyploidy and interspecific hybridization shape …
Polyploidy, the cornerstone of bursts of adaptive speciation, brings about genetic novelty. The emergence of new gene functions enables diversification, speciation, and hence plant evolution. This paper is part of the Annals of Botany Special Issue on Polyploidy.
