Abstract
Although the role of natural selection in the origin of species is now broadly established, we know little about mechanisms of selection and how they lead to the evolution of reproductive isolation. I describe recent experiments in ponds that address components of this problem in threespine stickleback, a group of fish that has diversified in postglacial lakes of the Pacific Northwest.
