Why would the identical amino acids region of certain specie

... are identical. For example the region coding for active site will be probably conserved, while some loops on surface of the protein will be divergent. Both on DNA and amino acid level. You can design primers on the divergent regions and then they will be species-specific, because they will ...

Theories - Origin of Life

... documented across the range of G. aculeatus, including among populations separated for millions of years... Another possibility, then, is that the divergent selection is not strong enough to generate irreversible barriers through ecological speciation. Equivalently, assortative mating may not be ...

... & McPhail 1999). Consequently, they fulfill the principal criteria of biological species. It has been well argued that ecological speciation, divergent selection involving exploitation of alternative trophic niches owing largely to resource competition, has been a major deterministic factor ...
