Abstract [en]

Darwin’s Principle of Divergence explains sympatric speciation as gradual and directional. Contradicting evidence suggests that species’ traits evolve saltationally. Here, we model coevolution in exploiter-victim systems. Victims (resource population) have heritable, mutable cue phenotypes with different levels of defense. Exploiters have heritable, mutable perceptual phenotypes. Our simulations reveal coevolution of victim mimicry and exploiter spe-cialization in a saltational and reversible cycle. Evolution is gradual and directional only in the specialization phase of the cycle. Once linked to assortative mating, exploiter specialization provides conditions for speciation.
