Week 2 Notes Key points//Terms// People Mutation in itself is not important but paired with other evolutionary mechanisms is important Genetic drift- random changes in an allele freq. that’s usually happing in generations over time. Molecular clock- time scale for how a species is created Chapter 22 Species & Speciation Species - Ability to pass on your genes - Closed gene pool - Biological Species Concept (BSC) most common used def.: Species are groups of actually or potentially interbreeding populations that are reproductively isolated from other such groups Reproductive Isolation Pre—zygotic- prevent fertilization - Behavioral (Mating dance, bird singing) - Gametic isolation ( - Physical/mechanical incompatibly, lock and key - Time (temporal) and Space (ecological) Post- zygotic – prevent development into a fertile individual - Genetic incompatibility Problem with BSC - Hard to test - Morphospecies concept- members of the same species will look alike, with similar DNA - Cannot apply to asexual organisms - Cannot apply to extinct organisms - Ring species - Hybridizations Ecological Species Concepts (ESC)- ecological niche (ex. Bacteria & nutritional requirements) *Phylogenetic species concept (Evolutionary concept)(PSC)- members share a common ancestry - Apply to asexual species Speciation- the development of reproductively isolated populations resulting from the genetic divergence of separated populations **Partially reproductively isolated** Speciation from geographical separation *Most speciation *Subspecies 2 Processes for allopatric speciation - Dispersal; mainland population moves to an island population (Peripartric speciation)  island pop. Has faster genetic divergence due to genetic drift & natural selection, adaptation to their new environment - Vicariance; change in the geography to spared a species **Research Darwin’s finches
