Explain the difference between reproductive and geographical isolation.

Open in App
Solution

1. Geographic isolation can be a type of reproductive isolation.
2. Geographic isolation refers to the separation of two populations by physical boundaries, such as rivers, mountains, etc.
3. Reproductive isolation occurs when two populations no longer produce viable offspring. This can be due to geographical isolation (they can't mate with each other if they can get together) or due to other factors such as behavioral differences.
