    Gene flow can decrease when a species moves to a new environment and has low fitness. This causes maladaptation of the species in their new environment (Garant et. al 2007:437). This leads to many theories about gene flow in nature and is the logic of ecological speciation (Garant et. al 2007:437). For one, the rate of dispersal showed be higher than the rate of gene flow, which is the case among many groups. Examples of this have been seem among pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum and in sockeye…
