Adaptive maternal effects and rapid population differentiation

Abstract:
How rapidly can two populations diverge when exposed to different selection pressures? And what mechanisms contribute to rapid population divergence? A remarkable new study by Badyaev et al. of house finches Carpodacus mexicanus suggests that simultaneous maternal adjustment of offspring sex ratio and growth rates has played an important role in rapid population differentiation associated with an explosive range expansion.
