Genomics of rapid incipient speciation in sympatric threespine stickleback.

In only 150 years, threespine stickleback have evolved lake (left) and stream (right) ecotypes in Lake Constance, Central Europe. We found differentiation on multiple chromosomes persisting even in sympatry, suggesting early ecological speciation. See Marques et al.
