Fecundity of transgenic wild–crop hybrids of Cucurbita pepo (Cucurbitaceae): implications for crop-to-wild gene flow

Hybridization between crops and their weedy or wild relatives is an area of concern because the widespread use of genetically engineered crops may allow novel, beneficial transgenes to enter nearby populations. We compared fitness components of wild Cucurbita pepo from Arkansas, USA, with wild–crop hybrids derived from yellow squash (a cultivar of C. pepo… CONTINUE READING
