"When in the F – you can generate lots of species via founder events!1 offspring of two different animal races one sex is absent, rare, or sterile, that sex is the heterozygous [heterogametic] sex.
J.B.S. Haldane (1922) Sex-ratio and unisexual sterility in hybrid animals. J. Genetics12, 101-109.Haldane's Rule – postzygotic reproductive isolation
In most familiar species except birds and butterflies the heterogametic sex is male
It turns out that the X chromosome is often implicated in hybrid sterility.
- females from D. persimilis x D. pseusoobscura F1
- males D. pseudoobscura.
Sympatric speciation is a controversial topic! Read e.g. – you can generate lots of species via founder events!
