will geographical isolation be a major factor in the speciation of a self pollinating plant species and an organism that reproduces asexually?

  • science -

    Wouldn't it depend on the genetic mutation rate? If mutations occur frequently, then the local climate could favor some of the mutations reproduction fitness, and "select"those mutations.
    Otherwise, no.
