Introduction
There has been a recent surge in interest into the process
of speciation (Howard & Berlocher, 1998; Schluter, 2000,
2001; Barraclough & Nee, 2001; Orr & Turelli, 2001;
Panhuis et al., 2001), motivated by the fact that several
aspects of the evolution of reproductive isolation are still
incompletely understood. For example, new efforts have
been made to link adaptation with speciation (Orr &
Smith, 1998; Schluter, 2001), to characterize the evolu-
tionary processes leading to premating isolation (Parker
& Partridge, 1998; Panhuis et al., 2001) and to better
understand the evolution of post-zygotic isolation (Orr &
Presgraves, 2000; Turelli & Orr, 2000). One line of
research which has received increased attention is
motivated by the realization that a number of events
occurring after mating but prior to zygote formation can
