Evolution: Is Recombination Rate Variation Adaptive?
Curr Biol 2020 Apr 20; 30(8):R351-R353
Recombination rates vary between species and individuals, but the evolutionary significance of this variation remains unknown. A new study demonstrates that recombination rate divergence in two natural populations of Drosophila pseudoobscura has been driven by adaptive evolution.
