Title: Speciation in the Neotropics and the Founder Principle 
Author: do Val, Francisca C.
Date: 1988
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press
Citation: do Val FC. 1988. Speciation in the neotropics and the founder principle. Pac Sci 42(1-2): 105-114
Abstract: The association of bottleneck effects and speciation patterns observed
in South American flies Drosophila paulistorum, lizards Anolis chrysolepis
and Mabuya arajara, and frogs in the genus Cycloramphus is briefly examined.
Bottleneck effects as con sequences of reduction of population sizes in
situ seem to be a relevant factor to speciation, distinct from isolation through
large-scale fragmentation, environmental differences, or genetic drift.
