Evolution: Speciation by Migratory Drop-Off in Flycatchers

David P.L. Toews, Marcella D. Baiz

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


Identifying the isolating barriers that lead to species formation is challenging. New genomic, phylogenetic and life-history data in Tyrant flycatchers — the largest bird family — suggest long-distance migration contributes to reproductive isolation among closely related forms and to differential diversification across the family.
