Mechanisms of Reproductive Isolation during Rapid Speciation


Mit der Doktorarbeit soll erforscht werden, in wie weit die verschiedenen Mechanismen der Reproduktiven Isolation zur Artbildung beitragen. 

This project will consider different mechanisms of reproductive isolation: premating, postmating-prezygotic and postzygotic isolation. By combining behavioral , molecular and developmental approaches, we will explore how reproductive isolation mechanisms contributed to speciation in Midas cichlids. Additionally, we will evaluate a potential association among reproductive barriers with different biogeographic settings. By using whole genome data, we intend to find the potential genetic basis of the different reproductive isolation mechanisms.
