Divergence with Genetic Exchange

Michael L. Arnold


This book is an investigation into processes associated with evolutionary divergence and diversification. The focus, as the title indicates, is on the role played by the exchange of genes between divergent lineages. This process has been given various names, with one of the most recent being “divergence-with-gene-flow.” Examples of genetic exchange-mediated evolution include organisms from all domains of life. Though the mechanisms by which such divergent forms of life exchange genomic material differ widely, the outcomes of interest—i.e. adaptive evolution and the formation of new “hybrid” li ... More

Keywords: divergence-with-gene-flow, genetic exchange, adaptive evolution
