Title of the talk: Two flies on an island: Speciation in African Drosophila

Abstract from the Speaker:

Two sister species of Drosophila, D. yakuba and D. santomea, are sympatric on the island of São Tomé off 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, comparing our findings to other species in the genus in an attempt to discover if there are generalizations to be found about how new species form.
