    ..Limited migration among allopatric populations and species interactions can also drive speciation, but here we ask if trade-offs alone are sufficient to drive speciation in the absence of other factors...

    Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences, Claremont, CA 91711, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 279:247-56. 2012
    ..Our findings imply that the synergism between loci that interact epistatically is crucial for evolving genetic modules with high fitness, while too much ruggedness stalls the adaptive process...
