Reticulate evolutionary history and extensive introgression in mosquito species revealed by phylogenetic network analysis
The role of hybridization and subsequent introgression has been demonstrated in an increasing number of species. Recently, Fontaine et al. (Science, 347, 2015, 1258524) conducted a phylogenomic analysis of six members of the Anopheles gambiae species complex. Their analysis revealed a reticulate evolutionary history and pointed to extensive introgression ...
Parsimonious Inference of Hybridization in the Presence of Incomplete Lineage Sorting
(Oxford University Press, on behalf of the Society of Systematic Biologists, 2013)
Hybridization plays an important evolutionary role in several groups of organisms. A phylogenetic approach to detect hybridization entails sequencing multiple loci across the genomes of a group of species of interest, reconstructing their gene trees, and taking their differences as indicators of hybridization. However, methods that follow this approach ...
