For this week’s discussion, pick your favorite example of speciation from the recent (no more than 10 years old) scientific literature! Please explain (1) how the taxa speciated (ex., allopatric vs sympatric) or make a guess if the authors are not explicit about it, (2) give us a little background about the organism that you chose, and (3) tell us something about the species in the group you chose: is your species group very small with only a few species, or is it very large?Are they worldwide or endemic to islands, etc.
Please be certain your article has a phylogeny in it so that we can see the relationships among the species!
Please be certain to give the full citation and DOI (if available). And please read through all the entries before submitting yours, so that you pick a novel article that has not yet been discussed!
