The spread of chromosomal inversions as a mechanism for reinforcement
Several examples of chromosomal inversions carrying genes affecting mate choice have been reported from various organisms. Furthermore, inversions are also frequently involved in genetic isolation between populations or species. Past work has shown that inversions can spread when they capture not only some loci involved in mate choice but also loci involved in incompatibilities between hybridizing populations . In this new paper , the authors derive analytical approximations for the select...
