Conservation Implications of Invasion by Plant Hybridization

  title={Conservation Implications of Invasion by Plant Hybridization},
  author={Montserrat Vil{\`a} and Ewald Weber and Carla M.D Antonio},
  journal={Biological Invasions},
The increasing number of invasive exotic plant species in many regions and the continuing alteration of natural ecosystems by humans promote hybridization between previously allopatric species; among both native as well as between native and introduced species. We review the ecological factors and mechanisms that promote such hybridization events and their negative consequences on biological diversity. Plant invasions through hybridization may occur in four different ways: hybridization between… CONTINUE READING
