Two flies on an island: Speciation in African Drosophila 
 
Thu, Dec 21, 2017,   04:00 PM to 05:00 PM at Sir C. V. Raman Auditorium, Lecture Hall Complex

Prof. Jerry Coyne
University of Chicago

Two sister species of Drosophila, D. yakuba and D. santomea, are sympatric on the island of Sao Tome off the west coast of Africa. In this talk, I describe a number of studies that investigate the biogeography, genetics, and evolutionary dynamics of these species, comparing our findings to other species in the genus in an attempt to discover if there are generalizations to be found about how new species form.
