    Natural selection and repeated patterns of molecular evolution following allopatric divergence

    Yibo Dong et al.
    The genomic architecture of allopatric species is a mosaic of many conserved genes and a few adaptive ones, reflecting balance between conservation of ancestral functions and evolution of new features.

    Speciation: How predictable is genome evolution?

    Matthew J Coathup et al.
    Similar patterns of genomic divergence have been observed in the evolution of plant species separated by oceans.

    The structure of species discrimination signals across a primate radiation

    Sandra Winters et al.
    Machine learning and experimental tests of receiver bias identify signal components critical to correct species classification in guenons, linking face pattern diversity to selection for species discrimination.

    Physiological constraint on acrobatic courtship behavior underlies rapid sympatric speciation in bearded manakins

    Meredith C Miles et al.
    Skeletal muscle performance sets the course of rapid speciation by defining the evolutionary trajectory of reproductive behavior.

    High-resolution mapping reveals hundreds of genetic incompatibilities in hybridizing fish species

    Molly Schumer et al.
    Genetic incompatibilities are common and widely distributed throughout the genomes of swordtail fish, and prevent the regions of the genome around them from being exchanged between different species.

    The evolutionary history and genomics of European blackcap migration

    Kira Delmore et al.
    Variation in migration can evolve rapidly and traits that comprise this behaviour may be determined by standing variation at a few regulatory regions that are not common across taxonomic groups.

    Mummified baboons reveal the far reach of early Egyptian mariners

    Nathaniel J Dominy et al.
    The fabled land of Punt is mapped for the first time using quantitative methods from the disciplines of primatology, geochemistry, and geography.

    Gene flow mediates the role of sex chromosome meiotic drive during complex speciation

    Colin D Meiklejohn et al.
    Selfish genetic elements may either promote or prevent the evolution of reproductive barriers, depending on the extent of gene flow between species.

    High-quality carnivoran genomes from roadkill samples enable comparative species delineation in aardwolf and bat-eared fox

    Rémi Allio et al.
    High-quality genomes can be obtained from roadkill samples and used in population genomics for species delimitation with conservation implications.

    Oldest skeleton of a fossil flying squirrel casts new light on the phylogeny of the group

    Isaac Casanovas-Vilar et al.
    Flying squirrels may have originated earlier than previously thought and remained unchanged for almost 12 million years.
