The two “rules of speciation” in species with young sex chromosomes

Abstract:

The two “rules of speciation,” Haldane's rule (HR) and the large‐X effect (LXE), are thought to be caused by recessive species incompatibilities exposed in the phenotype due to the hemizygosity of X‐linked genes in the heterogametic sex. Thus, the reports of HR and the LXE in species with recently evolved non‐ or partially degenerate Y‐chromosomes, such as Silene latifolia and its relatives, were surprising. Here, I argue that rapid species‐specific degeneration of Y‐linked genes and associat...
