Description:

The issue-focused, peer-reviewed article demonstrates how ring species provide a unique glimpse into how some species came to be. A ring of populations encircles an area of unsuitable habitat. At one location in the ring, two distinct forms coexist without interbreeding. Around the rest of the ring, the traits of one species change gradually through intermediate populations into the second species' traits.
