    Mol Ecol 17:2505-21. 2008
    ..The fact that some genetic breaks do not coincide with well-known geographic barriers suggests a role for ecology in divergence and speciation, and we discuss implications for taxonomy and conservation...

    John E McCormack
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Los Angeles, Charles E Young Drive South, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    BMC Biol 6:28. 2008
    ..We also predicted that divergence times estimated from corrected genetic distance and a coalescence model would post-date the last glacial maximum...

    Katherine M Pease
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA
    Mol Ecol 18:1848-62. 2009

    Proc Biol Sci 275:2155-64. 2008
    ..These results demonstrate that niche expansion can lead to adaptive divergence despite gene flow between parapatric populations along an elevation gradient, providing information on a key precursor to ecological speciation...

    Syst Biol 61:717-26. 2012
    ..Because many organismal lineages have UCEs, this type of genetic marker and the analytical framework we outline can be applied across the tree of life, potentially reshaping our understanding of phylogeny at many taxonomic levels...

    Evolution 64:1231-44. 2010
    ..These results do not support an ecological speciation model for Mexican Jay lineages because, in most cases, the allopatric environments they occupy are not significantly more divergent than expected under a null model...
