In order to understand the process of speciation, we need to study how populations diverge from one another genetically and how this divergence is maintained in the face on ongoing gene flow and hybridization. Environmental changes and disturbances may impact this process of divergence. Rising global temperatures have led to shifts in species ranges, shifts in the timing of life-history events, or alterations in the strength of reproductive isolating barriers. Here, I present research on the genetic and environmental contributions to reproductive isolation and population divergence in Lepidoptera.

Intended Audience:
Beginners, undergraduates, graduates. Those with interest in the topic.
