Author Contributions

MAFN conceived and designed the experiments. DOB and MAFN performed the pure-species and F1 mating experiments. DOB performed all parts involving the male-parent backcrosses and the mating assays in the female-parent backcrosses. DOB built the recombinational map for D. pseudoobscura. DOB and BAC genotyped the female backcross hybrids. DOB analyzed the data. MAFN contributed reagents/materials/analysis tools. DOB wrote the paper.
