Genomic analyses of gene flow and selection during diversification in Senecio

Abstract:

Diversifying selection and gene flow were traditionally viewed as antagonistic forces, with diversifying selection promoting adaptation and speciation, and gene flow opposing them. However, their roles are far more complex than this. While gene flow can prevent speciation or initiate despeciation, it can also generate new hybrid species. Similarly, while adaptive divergence can be wiped out by gene flow, new adaptive variation can be introduced via hybridisation. The relative frequency of ...
