Two flies on an island: speciation and hybridization in African Drosophila flies



Two sister species of Drosophila, D. yakuba and D. santomea, are sympatric on the island of  São Tomé of the west coast of Africa. In this talk I describe a number of studies that investigate the biogeography, genetics, and evolutionary dynamics of these species, concentrating on their hybridization in nature and the laboratory. We compare our findings to other species in the genus to see if there are generalizations about the formation of species in this genus.




15.00-16.00: The "Peer Community in Evolutionary Biology" initiative, or how to publish top quality sciences in open access.


The founders of the PCI initiative (https://evolbiol.peercommunityin.org/) will present the PCI journal and answer questions on how to launch your peer reviewed open access journal.
