Genetics and the fitness of hybrids.
Over the years, the evolutionary importance of natural hybridization has been a contentious issue. At one extreme is the relatively common view of hybridization as an evolutionarily unimportantExpand

Natural Hybridization as an Evolutionary Process
Studies of natural hybridization have generally addressed evolutionary questions using one of the three following frameworks: (i) taxonomy or systematics (57, 59, 73, 79, 111, 172); (ii) mechanismsExpand

Are natural hybrids fit or unfit relative to their parents?
The process of natural hybridization may produce genotypes that establish new evolutionary lineages. However, many authors have concluded that natural hybridization is of little evolutionaryExpand

Pollen-mediated introgression and hybrid speciation in Louisiana irises.
Populations of the "Louisiana iris" species Iris fulva, I. hexagona, and I. nelsonii were examined genetically to test for interspecific gene flow between I. fulva and I. hexagona, for pollen- versusExpand

Reinforcement: the road not taken
Reinforcement, a process whereby natural selection strengthens prezygotic isolation between sympatric taxa, has gained increasing attention from evolutionary biologists over the past decade. ThisExpand

Understanding and confronting species uncertainty in biology and conservation
Recent essays on the species problem have emphasized the commonality that many species concepts have with basic evolutionary theory. Although true, such consensus fails to address the nature of theExpand
