Paraphrase endorsed! I stand by what I said in 2008: "Lack of hiatus between species and ecological races suggests that speciation may occur ... and the abundant intermediate stages suggest that it is happening all around us. Speciation is easy!"

Heh, heh! I was given a LOT of space by my PhD advisor who was in his own words ("lazy faire"), but surely the decisions of the PhD student itself must also be part of the process.

Thank you for reacquainting me with this paper. I interviewed Bruce Wallace (now sadly deceased) at VA Tech on this, and can confirm his influence on the Mayr 1954 founder effect speciation paper.
