Tests for Sexual Isolation in Plethodontid Salamanders (Genus Desmognathus) Article (PDF Available) in Journal of Herpetology 22(2) June. Abstract. Chromosomes and DNA sequence homologies have been studied in 15 species of North American salamander belonging to the genus include 4 Eastern small species, 5 Eastern large species, 5 Western, and 1 New Mexican by: The Eurycea bislineata (Two-lined salamander) species complex is characterized by extensive geographic genetic fragmentation throughout its range.

I tested for sexual isolation and divergence in courtship behavior across a contact zone between E. wilderae and E. cirrigera.I found concordance between patterns of geographic genetic fragmentation and sexual isolation Cited by: Technique to Isolate Salamander Granular Gland Products with a Comment on the Evolution of Adhesiveness Article (PDF Available) in Copeia (2) May with 63 Reads.

Salamanders are commonly used for the study of the evolution of courtship behaviour can lead to sexual isolation group of plethodontid salamanders (genus Plethodon). Salamanders of the genus Plethodon exhibit a stereotyped courtship during which a reproductive male delivers courtship pheromones from.

Indeed, patterns of sexual isolation among populations of Plethodon jordani and P. teyahalee match expectations of reinforcem with sexual selection being stronger in sympatry than. Complete catalogs of courtship behavior are available for only seven of the 42 currently recognized species of onal detailed studies of courtship behavior in Plethodon species are needed to analyze the evolution of courtship behavior in this genus.

Competition can also generate morphological shifts, and if competing species co-occur in multiple geographic regions, then repeated instances of competitively-driven morphological divergence (character.

Members of the Plethodontinae include woodland salamanders of the genera Aneides and Plethodon, which occur both in eastern and western North America, the western North American genus Ensatina, and the genus Hydromantes of California (subgenus Hydromantes), southern Europe, and Sardinia (subgenera Atylodes and Speleomantes; Wake et al., ).

The North American genus Plethodon presently has more recog-nized forms than any other genus of salamanders.

It is the type genus of the lungless family Plethodontidae, reviewed so ably by Dunn in At present, this is the most successful salamander family; over half of the living species of the Order Caudata are plethodontids.

; – Conde-Padin P, Cruz R, Hollander J, Rolan-Alvarez E. Revealing the mechanisms of sexual isolation in a case of sympatric and parallel ecological divergence. There are many examples of incomplete reproductive isolation among Caudata (Voss and Shaffer, ; Mead and Verrell, ; Tilley, ), and there has been an impressive amount of work investigating sexual incompatibility among the woodland (genus Plethodon) and dusky (genus Desmognathus) salamanders (family Plethodontidae; Arnold et al.

Based on the prevalence of competition among species in the genus Plethodon [38,41], I hypothesize that parallel evolution of character displacement may be more widespread. First, there are many species pairs that exhibit similar geographic patterns to those seen in P. jordani and P. teyahalee, with geographically distinct sympatric localities.

Protein pheromones in salamanders of the genus Plethodon have experienced rapid and pervasive directional selection. Variation in mate recognition components, such as the sex-specific pheromones used by plethodontid salamanders, may influence sexual incompatibility and therefore provide a biochemical mechanism for the maintenance of discrete, isolated.
