Parapatric and allopatric speciation, in the forms of the Ecological Gradients and Montane Vicariance hypotheses respectively, have been suggested to explain the diversification of Andean fauna. More extensive sampling, including more elevational belts and mountain replicates, additional molecular markers, and the inclusion of isolation by resistance methods, might help to shed further light on speciation by Andean mammals. The soft grass mouse, Akodon mollis, was chosen as the test organism because of its wide elevational and latitudinal range.

Some features of this site may not work without it. The most important variables were associated with temperature, and these almost perfectly correlated with elevation. An unambiguous test of the Ecological Gradient hypothesis was not possible; however, Montane Vicariance was suggested in akoodon instances where mice at similar elevations on different mountains were closely related.
