Divergence in life history and behaviour between hybridizing Phymata

David Punzalan
Life history variation plays a central role in evolutionary and ecological processes, and may be especially pertinent to divergence in closely related species. We investigated life history differences in a pair of parapatric species of ambush bugs (Phymata) and a putative hybrid population. Despite the evidence of gene flow among these species, we found clear divergence between these parapatric populations for a suite of juvenile and adult life history traits including components of fitness. The...
