Patterns of divergence in a wolf spider radiation from the Galápagos

Charlotte De Busschere (2011)
abstract
Within this thesis, phenotypic and genetic variation is explored in a wolf spider genus from the Galápagos. Quantifying such variation is fundamental to understand the factors that promote population differentiation and ultimately speciation. On Galápagos, the genus Hogna represents an intriguing case of ecotypic divergence in which darker coloured species are restricted to upland pampa habitat (high elevation species), while paler coloured species are only found in coastal arid habitats (coastal dry species). H. albemarlensis is less restricted in its habitat preference as it is found in a wide array of humid habitats. Furthermore, on the islands Santa Cruz and San Cristóbal, both a high elevation and coastal dry species occurs suggesting a potential case of parallel evolution.
