Parapatric Speciation

  • Definition: A branching of population lineages to form separate species in which the diverging lineages are mostly nonoverlapping in geographic distribution but make contact along a narrow borderline. This controversial mode of speciation contrasts with allopatric speciation and sympatric speciation.
