0410: Sympatric speciation
It is easy to imagine allopatric speciation taking place as populations become confined to physically separate locations (for example Darwin's finches on separate Galapagos islands). It is less easy to imagine how sympatric speciation can occur when the nascent species are physically mixed. Golubitsky and Stewart demonstrate a mathematical model of functional segregation in precisely such completely mixed populations.
