Topic: Cladogenesis

Cladogenesis defines those cases of evolution in which one species develops into two or more through adaptation.
Cladogenesis explains the development of a large assortment of species from a smaller set of ancestral species through evolution.
Cladogenesis is probably a more common form of evolution and speciation than anagenesis.

Genetic variance may be lost from a population through genetic drift, however in a metapopulation of several local populations with minimal gene flow between them, erosion of genetic variance by genetic drift occurs at a slower rate in the metapopulation as a whole than in a panmictic population of same size.
Cladogenesis of a local population is also contingent on long persistence time of the local population.
Cladogenesis of a local population may also occur in sympatry or in parapatry.

 Cladogenesis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-21)
Cladogenesis, or branching evolution, is the budding of a new species from a parent species that continues to exist.
Unlike Anagenesis, Cladogenesis promotes biological diversity by increasing the number of species.
Although it culminates over thousands or millions of years, cladogenesis is a real event: new species are created by cladogeneis, which is ultimately respoinsible for the origin of every major group of animals.

 More Info on Fossil Formation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-21)
The fossil records not only indicate a catalog of species that have become extinct but also reveal the extent to which major groups are related to each other through homologies of common ancestry.
In this process the origin of a new species is the direct result of the isolation of small populations from ancestral stocks.
Taken collectively and supported by the fossil remains, phyletic change and cladogenesis can result in adaptive radiation or evolution from a common ancestry to a number of different forms, each specialized to fill a different habitat and ecological niche.

It was these sudden moments of cladogenesis, when a speciation event takes place, that Darwin and Mendel did not understand, and could therefore not take into account when drawing up their family trees.
The exact relation of anagenesis to cladogenesis (are they related events and processes or are they independent of one another?), continues to be one of the unresolved issues facing evolutionary scientists today.
The word phylogenesis is used to summarize the combined processes of anagenesis and cladogenesis, and the examination of phylogenesis is often called phylogenetics.

Of the others, 17% appear to arise by anagenesis, so just 30% might be products of bifurcative, Hennigian cladogenesis: the pseudoextinction of an ancestor as it evolves into two or more desendants.
The results suggest that a large majority of mammalian species arise by peripheral isolates speciation, going on to live side-by-side with "sister" species that are morphologically identical to ancestors.
However, standard cladistic methods assume instead that all cladogenesis is by Hennigian bifurcation, so these methods should not be applied to paleontological morphospecies.

cladogenesis -- The development of a new clade; the splitting of a single lineage into two distinct lineages; speciation.
radiation -- Event of rapid cladogenesis, believed to occur under conditions where a new feature permits a lineage to move into a new niche or new habitat, and is then called an adaptive radiation.

 ENSI/SENSI Papers & Articles: The De-riving Force of Cladogenesis
Cladogenesis is the term used to describe the branching off of new taxa.
These branches - or clades -are based on several criteria which make the descendants along a particular branch different from their ancestors and from related taxa on other branches.

 How we look at the Relationships of Taxa
A PHYLOGENY is the actual history of cladogenesis in a clade.
This is the point at which the cohesiveness within a lineage (usually maintained through interbreeding) is broken and a branch takes on a new evolutionary direction independant of its previous connection with another species in the clade.
This can be as big as the movement of two continents splitting one species into two, or as subtle as a mutation occuring within an individual that prevents it from breeding but still allows it (or even helps it) to reproduce asexually (e.g.

One mechanism for the phenomenon of cladogenesis is allopatric speciation:
It has not generally been considered to be an important mechanism of cladogenesis, but there are some situations where it must acount for rapid speciation without geographical barriers;
Pre-mating barriers must arise first, and be very effective at preventing gene flow if cladogenesis is to take place.

Partners from the same lichen association are connected by lines between the phylograms; their crossing shows no overall parallel cladogenesis.
Examples of phylogenetic cospeciation, common to all TreeMap reconstructions as described in Table 2, are indicated on both trees with green dots marked A and B, and their partners are connected by green lines.

Fossils suggest two patterns of speciation: anagenesis and cladogenesis.
Anagenesis: one species transforms into another species; does not contribute to biological diversity.

 Punctuated Equilibria
In this manner, it can be made clear what PE means for the concept of paleospecies.
First, modern species appear to have derived from cladogenesis, the splitting of a daughter species from an ancestral species rather than transformation of the ancestral species in toto.
This is a multiplication of species, and without it, the diversity of the living systems that we see would be impossible.

Cladogenesis also involves the transformation of a single ancestral species.
