Our current simulations do not address this early phase of ecotype formation, which was instead explored by Sadedin et. Furthermore, although the unit of replication was the transect‐reference pair, it remained to be tested whether individuals’ differences in shape between transect snails could have explained part of the variation in mating probability. For simplicity, we restricted this analysis to France, where the difference in the hybrid index scores between the left and right modes was the smallest. PCA were conducted in PLINK v. 1.90 [54]. Figure S1. The parameters of the mating pattern were estimated from the observations in the mating experiment, which was designed to investigate the probabilities of mating given encounters between snails with a wide range of sizes and shapes. However, chromosomal inversions may also play a role between these taxa, as has been observed in L. saxatilis. As a proxy for the overall inverse strength of the reproductive barrier in each case, we measured the corresponding cline widths (Fig. Hybrid populations simulated using the program HYBRIDLAB [30] clearly show that none of the individuals was an early-generation hybrid (F1–F3) or first-generation backcross (electronic supplementary material, figure S2), although hybrid index scores within the observed ranges can be generated after only a few backcross generations (electronic supplementary material, figure S2). We estimated a hybrid index across all loci (i.e., both those influencing male and those influencing female size). Using whole-genome sequences and SNP genotyping of large field-collected samples, our study has clarified the evolutionary and reproductive relationships between L. arcana and L. saxatilis using samples spanning a large part of their range [24]. Conversely, when the mating function was asymmetric (Fig. What do we need to know about speciation? Allozyme variation indicates that the two parental morphs share a common gene pool, although within … It is also common for the optimum size ratio for mating to involve females larger than males and this is true for populations of L. saxatilis remote from our Swedish study sites as well as for related species of Littorina (Ng et al. The Wave and the Crab ecotypes (simply “Wave” and “Crab” in the following) are encountered widely in wave‐exposed and crab‐rich habitats, respectively, over the species’ North Eastern Atlantic distribution (Johannesson et al. The histograms show hybrid index scores for 3092 male, female and reproductively immature snails sampled from England, Wales and France. For example, they all require crevices to protect themselves from strong waves, and they are all herbivorous. In these calculations, the estimate of assortative mating typically comes from comparisons between divergent populations as indices of premating isolation (e.g., Yule's V [Gilbert and Starmer 1985] and IPSI [Rolán‐Alvarez and Caballero 2000]). Working off-campus? Una ning gihulagway ni Giuseppe Olivi ni adtong 1792. All nodes have 100% bootstrap support, except for two nodes where the support is indicated by the numbers. This provides an excellent opportunity to quantify the barrier effects of assortative mating and sexual selection. The taxonomy of the Gastropoda has been recently revised (see Ponder & Lindberg 1997, and Taylor 1996). At each transect position, Tf, sizes for females were drawn randomly from a normal distribution with the mean and standard deviation () predicted for that position on the fitted cline. Finally, based on these estimates of assortment and sexual selection, we assessed the likely barrier effects of these two components of isolation by performing individual‐based computer simulations. Evolutionary relationships between Littorina arcana (egg-laying) and Littorina saxatilis (brooding). AMW was funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under Marie Skłodowska‐Curie grant agreement no. The impacts of assortative mating and sexual selection can also be separated (Servedio and Boughman 2017). Ang mga gi basihan niini 1.0 1.1 1.2; Kining maong panid kataposang giusab niadtong 7 Disyembre 2020 sa 18:04. All marker development, DNA extraction and genotyping was conducted by LGC Bioresearch Technologies. The coexistence of these taxa across such a large area implies that they are occupying distinct ecological niches on the shore, which may also contribute to isolation between them. But how do strong barriers acting in sympatry originate? Each sampled transect was approximately ‐m long and included one boulder field (Crab snail habitat) flanked on both sides by cliffs (Wave snail habitat), resulting in two Crab‐Wave contact zones per island. Demographic reconstructions suggest that the ecotypes have diverged without periods of allopatry [17]. Together, these results rule out the completion of speciation prior to range overlap and suggest that the divergence history of L. arcana and L. saxatilis has involved at least some gene flow between them. One example where multiple barrier effects are coupled consists of a single trait that is under divergent natural selection and also mediates assortative mating. Cah. of a geographical barrier. 2004; Johannesson et al. The barrier to gene flow was strengthened by the mating pattern observed (assortative mating plus a component of sexual selection on males) in comparison to random mating (as shown by the narrower clines under the AS model, compared to the RM model; Fig 4). S5), or for all individuals (third column in Fig. To date, most studies of speciation in L. saxatilis have focused on the parallel evolution of RI between locally adapted ‘crab’ and ‘wave’ ecotypes owing to divergent selection in different areas of the intertidal zone [17,18,20,33,34]. On the first three days of desiccation, the heat production was continuously reduced to 40% of the submersed value. Hierarchical model fits for the variables with large effects on the mating rate and center. We chose it so that an individual that was perfectly adapted to one habitat end had a fitness equal to 0.7 in the other habitat end, and vice versa. Predicted assortment was strongest at the centers of the clines where the size variance was greatest, intermediate in the wave habitat, and weakest in the crab habitat where the size variance was smallest (Figs. Table 2. Merkmale. This species frequently lives in salt marshes. The cline widths for the model with asymmetric mating function (AS model) were significantly smaller than cline widths for the random‐mating model (compare Figs. The histograms show hybrid index scores for 3092 male, female and reproductively immature snails sampled from England, Wales and France. Hybrid zones provide excellent conditions for quantifying the extent to which gene flow between distinct populations is reduced by divergent natural selection and assortative mating (Hewitt 1988). were involved in the organization and execution of fieldwork and/or the processing of samples. Mating trials were performed indoors under constant light and at room temperature. The spatial pattern of HI was best explained by a symmetric cline model in all cases (not shown). When tackling a big problem such as the origin of species, it is natural to try to classify examples in order to make the task more manageable. 2010; Johannesson et al. However, the route towards strong RI between these taxa is very different from the formation of ecotypes in L. saxatilis, as it is unlikely to have evolved as a result of divergent selection acting across a sharp ecological gradient. However, other barriers, including assortative mating and microhabitat choice, may also play important roles, or may even be the primary barrier to gene flow. Reinforcement is unlikely in Swedish L. saxatilis because hybrid zones affect only a small proportion of the population and they are subject to strong gene flow from parental populations, which are not conditions likely to generate a response to reinforcing selection (Servedio and Noor 2003). It is also not known whether sexual selection enhances the reproductive barrier in this system. Since both juvenile and adult dispersal are low, family groups are likely to exhibit high site fidelity and, if a particular haplotype were … (1997). Multiple models with similar values consistently included size ratio effects, with the square of size ratio being the strongest effect, but varied in the other factors that entered the model (Tables S1 and S2). 2019) suggesting that this mating pattern is ancestral. We estimated cline centers and widths, Crab and Wave ecotype means, and the change in variance across the transect by maximum likelihood (“bbmle” package in R, function mle2(); Bolker and R Development Core Team 2017) using equations from Derryberry et al. 3 and S4). But what is the history behind strong barriers currently acting in sympatry? ABSTRACT: Investigations on reproductive biology in three Littorina species of the southern North Sea. Distances between islands ranged from approximately to km (Google). This suggests two alternative routes to strong isolation, dominated by accumulation of incompatibilities in allopatry or by ecological divergence (cf. We used RAxML v8 [53] to reconstruct the evolutionary relationships among the 24 samples from a concatenated alignment of all variant sites from across the genome using the HPC-PTHREADS-SSE3 implementation of the program with the GTRGAMMA model. Littorina saxatilis is an intertidal marine snail forming multiple ecotypes, facilitated by low dispersal due to direct development. To test this hypothesis, we used a modified version of ∂a∂i [31,32] to model the demographic history of divergence from the joint-site-frequency spectrum (JSFS), separately in each location, using our whole-genome sequences. S.S. and R.K.B. By contrast, sexual selection under the AS model creates a much greater increase in the total strength of direct stabilizing selection on males because their phenotypic distribution has to reach a compromise between the forces of natural and sexual selection. Second, we used the resulting mating pattern to infer assortative mating and sexual selection across the contact zones between populations of the Crab and Wave ecotypes. Skepticism towards Santa Rosalia, or why are there so few kinds of animals? Littorina saxatilis (Olivi, 1792) is an intermediate host for 12 species of trematodes belonging to eight families, they all cause parasitic castration of the infected snails. The simulation predicts the impact of the mating pattern, if these assumptions are correct, rather than estimating the actual effects. The authors declare no conflict of interest. Figure S5. In many locations around the North Atlantic, including France, the UK, Sweden and Spain, it is possible to find phenotypically divergent populations of L. saxatilis in close proximity: a ‘crab’ ecotype, which has evolved thick, large shells in response to a high level of crab predation, and a ‘wave’ ecotype, which has evolved small, thin shells as an adaptation to withstand strong wave exposure [21]. n1, size of population 1 after split proportional to the effective size of the ancestral population, Nref; n2, size of population 2 after split proportional to Nref. This is because the coupling of barrier effects occurs automatically in models of speciation that include partial or complete geographical isolation [7]. newts [45]; gulls [46]). This simulation used parameters estimated from the field wherever possible but necessarily made some assumptions. V. Deux cas de variabilite extreme. More than 3300 snails were collected across three locations in the North Atlantic intertidal zone: near Ravenscar in England (54°24′28″ N ; 0°29′33″ W), on Anglesey in Wales (53°17′58″ N; 4°40′48″ W) and near Roscoff in France (48°41′42″ N; 4°06′42″ W).

Along‐shore transects including Crab‐Wave contact zones were sampled on four small islands on the Swedish west coast. We compared the fit of nine variants of this model (electronic supplementary material, figure S3), including (i) strict isolation (SI), where an ancestral population split without subsequent gene flow, (ii) SC, where a split coincided with a period of allopatry followed by gene flow upon recontact, (iii) ancient migration (AM), where gene flow occurred early in speciation but ceased at some point during the split, (iv) speciation with gene flow (IM), where gene flow occurred at a constant rate during divergence, and (v) a two-rate model of speciation with gene flow (IM2R8), where the migration rate changed at a point in time, Tm, during divergence. Using this assay, we identified 54 individuals with compressa scores of 1. This article is part of the theme issue ‘Towards the completion of speciation: the evolution of reproductive isolation beyond the first barriers'. = 1, p = 0.102), where egg layers and brooders coexist at approximately equal frequency. We find no difference in mating pattern between ecotypes. = 2, p < 0.00001; figure 2). Sequencing libraries were prepared using a TrueSeq DNA Nano gel-free library prep with a 350 bp insert and then sequenced on a HiSeq X (150 PE) to a theoretical average depth of 15× coverage. By contrast, the ratios of L. arcana to L. saxatilis were similar in England and Wales (without France: χ2 = 2.81, d.f. 4F) than in the case of a symmetric mating function with the optimum equal to the mean of the asymmetric function (SimMR model, Fig. S5): a width of less than 40 patches was found in only about 3% of clines obtained under the random mating (RM) model, but in 97% of clines under the AS model. To investigate this barrier effect, the first step is to quantify how the probability of mating varies with respect to female and male size distributions. In the light of the current distributions of these taxa, we propose the following biogeographic history as a working hypothesis for their divergence: the brooding strategy—the trait that defines L. saxatilis—probably arose in a location where the egg-laying reproductive strategy is now absent. We found that assortative mating also increased the barrier strength in comparison to that established under the RM model for the remaining three models of assortment (compare solid vertical lines in Figs. Although considered less common, it is possible for strong RI to evolve with little or no geographical separation [14]. SNP genotyping of more than 3000 snails failed to recover any individuals that were consistent with being recent hybrid or backcross individuals, confirming that RI between L. arcana and L. saxatilis is very strong. For symmetric mating functions (Figs. We take the width of the trait cline as a measure of barrier strength because it is expected to reflect the impact of the barrier on gene flow (Barton and Gale. The difference between the final phenotype of males and their optimal phenotype under natural selection alone was slightly larger than the mean of the mating function (blue solid line is between dashed blue and dashed cyan line in Fig. In the extreme, there might be only a single trait involved, such as habitat choice or flowering time (“matching rule by a grouping mechanism”; Kopp et al. compressa score’, using the seven additional SNP markers. “Multiple‐effect” traits are traits that contribute to more than one barrier effect (Smadja and Butlin 2011). A combination of ecological differentiation, range overlap and low levels of introgression can be found in a diverse range of other systems, such as flatfish [41,42], poplars [43], lampreys [32] and flies [44]. 1 to pop. Es wird ein Aquarium von mindestens 100 Liter empfohlen. This scenario may ultimately lead to the broad coexistence of populations if isolation is strong and contrasting habitats become patchily distributed. There was, however, evidence for a very low level of asymmetrical introgression, suggesting that isolation remains incomplete. There were no significant differences in the distribution of the estimated cline widths between HI clines for males only (first column in Fig. Nevertheless, it is clear that the sexual selection generated by the mating pattern asymmetry is likely to generate a key component of the overall barrier effect. The difference was largest in England, where the SI model was 834 AIC points worse than the best-fitting model, and smallest in France, where it was 372 points worse than the best fit. 1999, 2004; Johannesson et al. 2010) and so we expect the major effect to be sexual selection for smaller male size. We, therefore, removed the individuals from further analyses, leaving 3092 samples. Thus, size is a multiple‐effect trait, under direct divergent selection between the Crab and Wave habitats and also a key trait influencing mating success. The AS model contains effects of assortative mating, directional sexual selection due to displacement of the optimum, and directional sexual selection due to the asymmetric mating probability. 3. Models SimXX, in which XX is either MR, OR, or M0, generate only stabilizing sexual selection whenever the sexual dimorphism present in a population matches the optimum of the mating function and do not generate any sexual selection when the distribution of male mating probability fully matches the distribution of males in the population. However, sexual selection was also predicted to vary along the transects of the four islands in line with the size variance and difference between female and male sizes.

Here, we analyze the mating pattern in L. saxatilis with respect to size in intensively sampled transects across boundaries between the habitats. A positive outcome was recorded if the male was in the mounting position for more than minute (Saur 1990). 3) were removed from the twenty unparasitized females However, these indices risk over‐simplifying the mating pattern and they fail to account for the presence of the intermediate phenotypes that occur whenever reproductive isolation is incomplete (Coyne and Orr 2004; Irwin 2020). However, the contribution that such a trait makes to the overall barrier to gene flow has not been measured in the appropriate context, that is, where hybridization generates intermediate phenotypes. High shore females (L. saxatilis H) mature at a smaller size and produce a smaller number of large eggs giving rise to large crawlaways The mid-shore form (L. saxatilis M) matures at a larger size and produces a large number of small eggs which give rise to small crawlaways. FST was estimated between all possible pairs of populations, both within and between taxa, according to Weir & Cockerham [57] using VCFtools [58]. For example, in allopatric divergence, the buildup of LD among barrier loci occurs as a simple by-product of geographical isolation, which may allow populations to coexist upon secondary contact (SC) [10,11]. (b) Estimates of FST between sample locations, both within and between L. arcana and L. saxatilis. Jeffrey Feder and an anonymous reviewer provided comments that improved the manuscript. J. Linn. The specific details of the pattern of historical gene flow between L. arcana and L. saxatilis are, however, less clear, as most of the 2m models (i.e. (a) Maximum-likelihood (ML) phylogeny constructed for snails with egg-laying or brooding anatomy from three locations (England, France and Wales) based on a concatenated alignment of genome-wide SNPs. The presence of strong, asymmetrical RI was further supported by demographic analysis of these populations. If the features of the observed distributions (i.e. Mar., Vol. Any shift in the optimum size ratio away from zero would cause a size ratio effect to be added to the model, as would any asymmetry in the mating probability. 2008). As the directional component of sexual selection moves the male mean size further from the environmental optimum, the strength of natural selection back toward the optimum increases. This may be one area where the models fail to capture important features of the natural system: sexual size dimorphism was quite different between Crab and Wave ecotypes in our field data, showing that no single level of dimorphism can resolve the conflict between natural and sexual selection. 1 to pop. Semi-diagrammatic representation of the female reproductive system of Littorina saxatilis. The current distributions of the ecotypes only ever overlap slightly, for example, in mosaic habitats covering a few metres in the mid-shore in Galicia [22,23]. Distribution of phenotypes at the two habitat ends at the end of the simulations for RM model (a‐b), AS model (c‐d), SimMR model (e‐f), SimOR model (g‐h), and SimM0 model (i‐j). 4F), the difference was slightly larger than the optimum of the function (dashed blue line). Many genomic regions potentially involved in the divergence process in L. saxatilis have been identified, including several putative inversions (Westram et al. Ophelia: Vol. Foot tissue was stored in 100% ethanol prior to DNA extraction. S.S. wrote the manuscript with input from the other authors. (Online version in colour.). Although L. compressa is relatively easy to identify based on shell morphology, these markers allowed us to find any misidentified individuals and exclude them from our analysis. Littorina saxatilis exists in a myriad of habitats, including exposed cliffs, rocky shore boulders and macroalgae, ... L. saxatilis possesses an ovoviviparous reproductive strategy (lacking oceanic larval dispersal), and adult snails have limited home-range dispersal (∼2–10 meters in their lifetimes; ). 2018; Servedio and Kopp 2012). The species can be distinguished based on differences in allozyme allele frequencies [27,28], but laboratory crosses generating viable and fertile offspring have been reported [27]. However, the variance was consistently larger than the simulated variances in all three populations of L. arcana (Wales: p = 0.010, France: p = 0.001, England: p = 0.041), most notably in France, where all 1000 of the simulated datasets had smaller variances than the observed distribution. (Online version in colour. 1, which is equal to 2Nrefm12, where m12 is the proportion of chromosomes in each generation that are new migrants from population 2 to population 1. Therefore, our model did not account for any genetic variation in the mating pattern and it was not necessary to specify its genetic basis to investigate its expected effect on the current barrier to gene flow. Because we considered a multiple‐effect trait, whereas Irwin considered a signal‐preference interaction that was separate from the trait under natural selection, we might have expected a stronger effect. In particular, we made the simplifying assumption that natural selection works equally on males and females, in the absence of evidence to the contrary. L.…. Nevertheless, our simulation results showed clear effects on barrier strength and allow general conclusions to be drawn. The contributions of individual barriers can be estimated by breaking down reproductive isolation into its components (Coyne and Orr 2004, pp. Among littorinid snails of various species, males preferentially track and mate females slightly larger than themselves (“similarity‐like” mechanism plus a constant; Erlandsson and Johannesson 1994; Saltin et al. To understand how these effects contribute to the barrier to gene flow between ecotypes, we performed individual‐based computer simulations for the evolution of a cline across a contact zone comparing five models that sequentially add these effects. Ang Littorina saxatilis sakop sa kahenera nga Littorina, ug kabanay nga Littorinidae. 2018). Specifically, the directional component (DSS, the difference in mean between mated and all males) was most negative at the centers of the contact zones (where the variance of ln(size) of males was highest), intermediate in the wave habitat (where variance in ln(size) was intermediate), and close to zero in the crab habitat (where the variance in ln(size) was lowest). However, differences between the observed and simulated distributions may indicate that some gene flow is occurring between the populations. Our initial data exploration using generalized linear models (see above) suggested that the relationship between mating probability and size ratio might vary according to island and ecotype (or snail shape). 1999). Assortment was measured as the Pearson correlation coefficient of between males and females in mated pairs, whereas sexual selection was estimated as (i) the difference in mean of mated males compared to mated plus non‐mated males (directional component) and (ii) the difference between the variance of for mated males and for all males (stabilizing component). RI appears to be even stronger in Spain (FST range = 0.09–0.12 [20]), as the ecotypes are able to coexist in a narrow zone with much lower admixture than in Sweden [23]. 4J and 4N), the difference between the optimal phenotype and the average phenotype attained by males at either habitat end approached the optimum of the corresponding mating function, indicating that directional sexual selection on males was strong relative to the natural selection implemented in the model. It was expected to run from 0.75 in patch 1 to 0.25 in patch in the steady state with random mating such that phenotypes run from to and it was calculated in each patch, separately for males, females, and all individuals. Two ecotypes of the coastal marine snail, Littorina saxatilis, occur in North Atlantic rocky‐shore habitats dominated by either crab predation or wave action.
