stasipatric speciation

stasipatric speciation Rapid speciation, by chromosomal mutation, that may occur among small breeding populations that are not completely isolated genetically or spatially. Such speciation may occur either parapatrically or sympatrically. M. J. D. White, who proposed the concept, pointed out that most species have their own unique karyotype, and suggested that the karyotype changes might have been the actual promoters of reproductive isolation.

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content.
