Behavioral phylogenies and the direction of evolution

Luther Val Giddings, Alan R. Templeton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A model for using mate preference data to deduce the direction of evolution between populations related by founder events or population bottlenecks is examined. Data from a wide range of organisms satisfying the necessary constraints of population structure are compatible with the model developed by K. Y. Kaneshiro from studies of Hawaiian Drosophila.
