en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Character_displacement

Brown and Wilson used the term character displacement to refer to instances of both reproductive character displacement, or reinforcement of reproductive barriers, and ecological character displacement driven by competition. As the term character displacement is commonly used, it generally refers to morphological differences due to competition.

Character displacement – trait evolution stemming from selection to lessen resource competition or reproductive interactions between species – has long been viewed as an important mechanism for enabling closely related species to coexist. Yet, the causes and consequences of character ...

Support for the reproductive character displacement hypothesis comes from observations of sympatric species in overlapping habitats in nature. Increased prezygotic isolation, which is associated with reproductive character displacement, has been observed in cicadas of genus Magicicada, stickleback fish, and the flowering plants of the genus Phlox.

Reproductive character displacement occurs when sympatric and allopatric populations of a species differ in traits crucial to reproduction, and it is commonly thought of as a signal of selection acting to limit hybridization.

case for reproductive character displacement: (1) the char-acter(s) involved must play a significant role in aspects of premating isolation and they must be perceptible to the spe-cies across the range of phenotypic displacement observed in sympatry; (2) the allopatric character states must represent

els of ecological and reproductive character displacement. We find that the qualitative behavior of these two processes can be quite different, and that a trait affecting assortative mating is much more likely to exhibit the classic pattern of character displacement than is a trait affecting resource ac-quisition.

The reproductive signals of two or more taxa may diverge in areas of sympatry, due to selection against costly reproductive interference. This divergence, termed reproductive character displacement (RCD), is expected in species-rich assemblages, where interspecific signal partitioning among closely related species is common.

This is the first demonstration of reproductive character displacement in genital characters in an organism other than insects and highlights the importance of analyzing previously overlooked genital morphologies in understanding the general mechanisms of prezygotic isolation in land snails.

Character displacement is a theory based off of Gause's Law, which states that no two species can occupy the exact same niche and flourish at the same population levels.

Interactions between species can affect the evolution of their sexual signals, receiver selectivity, or both. One commonly expected outcome is reproductive character displacement, whereby adverse ...
