Abstract
Three components of mating call (pulse duration, cycle length, and fundamental frequency) were measured and six diagnostic enzyme loci scored across the hybrid zone between the toads Bombina bombina and B. variegata. All three call components differ significantly, but only cycle length is diagnostic. The clines in call coincide with those for enzymes, and have similar widths. This suggests that there is no strong selection on any of these characters. There are significant correlations between electrophoretic markers and call components, but these are no stronger than would be expected if the electrophoretic loci and the genes causing mating call were neutral. The selection differential on the call is no greater than 6% of the difference in mean cycle length between the two taxa. There is a substantial increase in the variance of cycle length in the center of the zone, suggesting that a small number of loci are involved (≈ three). Recombination between these loci will hinder the evolution of reinforcement and may partly be responsible for the lack of premating isolation between B. bombina and B. variegata.
