The allopatric version of this model was studied by Manzo and Peliti [154].
Biological Evolution and Statistical Physics
The authors emphasize that this type of allopatric speciation occurs much faster and for less restrictive parameter ranges than the sympatric speciation in the previous model.
Biological Evolution and Statistical Physics
The focus of [155] is on the allopatric case, with m subpopulations, each of the same size M .
Biological Evolution and Statistical Physics
Kondrashov (1992) splits speciation into two kinds: allopatric speciation occurs when species arise as the by-products of evolution in geographically isolated populations, otherwise speciation is sympatric.
