Reproductive Isolation

Postby ReMuSoMeGa » Thu Feb 02, 2012 6:51 am

How does variance can result in reproductive isolation as a secondary consequence of natural selection?

Heres my attempt: Natural selection can favor two extreme phenotypes, and select against against the majority. This can result in a disruptive selection, and ultimately to speciation.

What else am I missing?
