Dynamics of drift, gene flow, and selection during speciation in silene

Abstract:

The mechanics of speciation with gene flow are still unclear. Disparity among genes in population differentiation (F ST) between diverging species is often interpreted as evidence for semipermeable species boundaries, with selection preventing "key" genes from introgressing despite ongoing gene flow. However, F ST can remain high before it reaches equilibrium between the lineage sorting of species divergence and the homogenizing effects of gene flow (via secondary contact). Thus, when interpr...
