a. Given what you know about population structure and speciation what would you predict about the dispersal of individuals within each population?
b. Can you think of a natural situation that might match this dispersal pattern? (hint: google “ring species” for some examples)
c. As described this represents one large species with many subpopulations, but how would that change if population #2 and #5 became extinct?
1. In ring species, geographically close populations are genetically compatible and can mate with eachother, but geographically distant populations are incompatible. In the example below each…
