Abstract Putative hybrids between Banksia hookeriana and B. prionotes were identified among 12 of 106 populations of B. hookeriana located at or near anthropogenically disturbed sites, mainly roadways, but none in 156 undisturbed populations. Morphometrics and AFLP markers confirmed that a hybrid swarm existed in a selected disturbed habitat, whereas no intermediates were present where the two species co‐occurred in undisturbed vegetation. Individuals of both species in disturbed habitats at 12… Expand
Conservation of rare, endemic braya species (Brassicaceae): Breeding system variation, potential hybridization and human disturbance
TLDR
Conservation strategies should focus on preserving populations throughout the entire range of each species in order to capture genetic variation among populations, and human activities that promote the population homogenisation should be minimized. Expand
Shift in precipitation regime promotes interspecific hybridization of introduced Coffea species
TLDR
Adaptation to new environmental conditions following introduction of Coffea species to New Caledonia has resulted in a secondary contact between three related species, which would not have happened in their native ranges, leading to hybridization and gene flow. Expand
Genetic and ecological consequences of interactions between three banksias in mediterranean‐type shrubland
TLDR
The results indicate that mechanisms of co-existence and isolation among plant species may operate at several genetic scales, and that subtle genotypic variation is of potential importance in maintaining co- existence among ecologically matched species. Expand
Unidirectional hybridization and reproductive barriers between two heterostylous primrose species in north-west Yunnan, China.
TLDR
Heteromorphy in flowers has a profound effect on breeding patterns within a species, but little is known about how it affects reproductive barriers between species, and this study examines in detail a natural hybrid zone between P. beesiana and P. bulleyana, suggesting that pollinator behaviour may not be an important isolating factor. Expand
Genetic and Ecological Differentiation in the Hybridizing Campions Silene dioica and S. latifolia
TLDR
It is suggested that other reproductive barriers together with dispersal limitation contribute to the rarity of early generation hybrids, and habitat–genotype associations within contact sites was weak making habitat-mediated selection against intermediate phenotypes of hybrids unlikely in the contact sites investigated. Expand
Favourable habitats for Coffea inter-specific hybridization in central New Caledonia: combined genetic and spatial analyses
TLDR
A predictive distribution model was constructed based on observation and environmental expertise on the nature and extent of coffee tree hybridization events and the distribution of habitats favourable for these hybrid zones at a regional scale to provide insight into the impact of adaptation to new environment.

ECOLOGICAL BARRIERS TO GENE FLOW BETWEEN RIPARIAN AND FOREST SPECIES OF AINSLIAEA (ASTERACEAE)
TLDR
Overall, this study suggests that adaptations to different habitats can lead to the formation of reproductive isolating barriers and the maintenance of distinct species boundaries. Expand
Reproductive isolation among two interfertile Rhododendron species: low frequency of post‐F1 hybrid genotypes in alpine hybrid zones
TLDR
The rarity of backcrosses to R. ferrugineum, F2s and later hybrid generations, which might be due to phenology effects and habitat‐mediated selection, could play a part in restricting gene flow towards R. hirsutum. Expand
Reproductive isolation among two interfertile Rhododendron species: low frequency of post-F 1 hybrid genotypes in alpine hybrid zones
TLDR
The direction of backcrossing might be highly asymmetric within hybrid zones, causing unidirectional gene flow from R. ferrugineum into R. hirsutum, which might be due to phenology effects and habitat-mediated selection. Expand
Hybridization and invasiveness in the freshwater snail Melanoides tuberculata: hybrid vigour is more important than increase in genetic variance
TLDR
An extensive field survey and quantitative genetic experiment are combined to show that hybrid lines have outcompeted their parents in natural habitats, and that increased invasiveness co‐occurred with pronounced shifts in life‐history traits, such as growth, fecundity and juvenile size. Expand

Spread of violets in polluted pine forests: morphological and molecular evidence for the ecological importance of interspecific hybridization
TLDR
It is proposed that recurrent hybridization and backcrossing resulted in novel genotypes adapted to the changed environment of polluted pine forests, including V. reichenbachiana by species‐specific RAPD bands. Expand
Introgressive hybridization in Rorippa (Brassicaceae): gene flow and its consequences in natural and anthropogenic habitats
TLDR
It is argued that landscape melioration in northwest Germany, particularly the creation of drainage ditches, favoured both hybrid‐zone formation and ecotypic differentiation within R. amphibia. Expand
Hybridization and the Extinction of Rare Plant Species
TLDR
It is suggested that hybridization is an increasing threat to rare species because ecological barriers are being disrupted by human activities and the negative consequences of hybridization are unlikely to be compensated for by immigration from conspecific populations. Expand
Interspecific Hybridization between Banksia hookeriana Meisn. and Banksia prionotes Lindl. (Proteaceae)
TLDR
Interspecific hybridization of Banksia hookeriana and Banksia prionotes was investigated via pollen tube growth, seed set, morphological measurements, and analysis of RAPD polymorphisms, and it was concluded that hybridization is unilateral, with interspecific seed set of B.hookeriana comparable to that following intraspecific pollination. Expand
Coexistence and competitive exclusion of Banksia hookeriana in the presence of congeneric seedlings along a topographic gradient
TLDR
Drought stress, as measured by leaf xylem tension and stomatal conductance, increased with greater density of seedlings, with increase in elevation, and over summer, and may account for the restricted distribution of this species. Expand
Reproductive biology and mating system of Banksia tricuspis (Proteaceae)
TLDR
Mating system values indicated that B. tricuspis is an obligate outbreeder, and the extent to which populations of this Banksia indulged in mixed mating was associated with habitat disturbance and its impact on pollinators. Expand
Interspecific Hybridization Involving Banksia prionotes Lind. and B. menziesii R.Br. (Proteaceae)
TLDR
Interspecific pollen tube growth within the Banksia genus was investigated using controlled hand pollinations of B. prionotes and B. menziesii, and the results indicated close affinity between the series Banksia and Crocinae. Expand
Flowering phenology, seed set and bird pollination of five Western Australian Banksia species
TLDR
It is suggested that non-avian pollinators, predatory insects, and characteristics of the breeding system may also have been important in the evolution of the observed flowering phenology and patterns of seed set. Expand
Interspecific hybridization of plants and resistance to herbivores: hypotheses, genetics, and variable responses in a diverse herbivore community
TLDR
This study demonstrates the diversity of responses of phytophages in response to interspecific hybridization, and support for the Additive hypothesis, Dominance hypothesis, and Hybrid Susceptibility hypothesis is found. Expand

A full accounting of the role of hybridization in adaptive evolution and speciation will probably require the integration of experimental and historical approaches. Expand
