Las calandrias del Nuevo Mundo (Icterus) incluyen un conjunto de especies cercanamente relacionadas y pares de subespecies que ofrecen oportunidades excelentes para el estudio de eventos recientes de especiación. Nosotros examinamos un par de subespecies en el grupo de los bolseros cafés: el bolsero castaño (I. spurius spurius), que es un migrante...

A consensus exists among contemporary philosophers of biology about the history of their field. According to the received view, mainstream philosophy of science in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s focused on physics and general epistemology, neglecting analyses of the ‘special sciences’, including biology. The subdiscipline of philosophy of biology emerged...
Article
Full-text available
Many studies of phylogeography, speciation, and species limits restrict their focus to a narrow issue: gene tree monophyly. However, reciprocal monophyly does not provide an ideal touchstone criterion of any aspect of evolutionary divergence. There is a continuum of divergence stages as isolated populations go from initial allele frequency differen...

Recent discussion of mechanism has suggested new approaches to several issues in the philosophy of science, including theory structure, causal explanation, and reductionism. Here, I apply what I take to be the fruits of the 'new mechanical philosophy' to an analysis of a contemporary debate in evolutionary biology about the role of natural selectio...

A recent phylogenetic survey of the New World orioles (genus Icterus; Omland et al. 1999) sug- gested that the Baltimore Oriole (I. galbula) and the Black-backed Oriole (I. abeillei) are sister taxa. That survey examined mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from a single representative of each species in the genus. Here, we examine mtDNA sequences from 15 Bla...

New World orioles (Icterus) include several closely related species and subspecies pairs that provide excellent opportunities for studying recent speciation. We examined a subspecies pair in the Orchard Oriole group: Orchard Oriole (I. spurius spurius), a long-distance migrant that breeds in eastern North America, and Fuertes’s Oriole (I. s. fuerte...
