Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Study tracks genomic changes that reinforce darter speciation

(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, News Bureau) When they share habitat, orangethroat and rainbow darters tend to avoid one another, even though they are closely related and can produce 'hybrid' offspring. A new study offers an analysis of the genomic changes that occur when these fish hybridize, offering insight into the gradual accumulation of incompatible traits that likely drives them to diverge.
