In the review, the known examples of presumable hybrid speciation in mammals are analyzed. It is often not easy to clearly differentiate hybrid speciation and derivatives of other evolutionary scenarios. Nevertheless, the reality of hybrid speciation, both allopolyploid (AHS) and homoploid (HHS), within this class has been demonstrated. Characteristically, the examples considered include only one case of AHS along with a multitude of HHS events. Speciation via polyploidy is unlikely in mammals… CONTINUE READING
