Fertile triploid males: an uncommon case among hybrid vertebrates.
TLDR
Flow cytometry and analysis of sequences of a fragment of the beta-actin nuclear gene applied to progenitors and offspring evidenced that these males produced their sperm clonally, as already described for diploid hybrids.
Recent invasion and low level of divergence between diploid and triploid forms of Carassius auratus complex in Croatia
TLDR
Microsatellite analyses revealed high allelic and clonal diversity, corroborating that high propagule vectors can compensate for the negative effects of genetic bottlenecks in successful invasive species, and the absence of significant population structuring confirmed recent origin and rapid spreading of populations.
Genetic basis and breeding application of clonal diversity and dual reproduction modes in polyploid Carassius auratus gibelio
TLDR
The data suggests that gibel carp are under an evolutionary trajectory of diploidization, and this work highlights future perspectives about the functional divergence of duplicated genes and the sexual origin of vertebrate animals.
Polyploidy and genetic diversity in the Lepidosperma costale species complex (Cyperaceae)
TLDR
It is suggested that polyploidy may be an important driver of diversification in Lepidosperma and that mixing of ploidy variants should therefore be avoided when restoring L. costale s.l. populations.
Genetic diversity and distribution patterns of diploid and polyploid hybrid water frog populations (Pelophylax esculentus complex) across Europe
TLDR
It is found that different hybrid and parental genotypes are not evenly distributed across Europe, and their genetic diversity is structured by latitude and longitude and the presence/absence of parental species but not of triploids.
Genetic diversity in water frog hybrids (Pelophylax esculentus) varies with population structure and geographic location
TLDR
Despite the low genetic variability within the discrete genomes, all‐hybrid P. esculentus populations in southern Sweden are apparently not suffering from direct negative fitness effects, probably because of its somatic hybrid status, which increases diversity through the combination of genomes from two species.
Sticky Genomes: Using NGS Evidence to Test Hybrid Speciation Hypotheses
TLDR
The allelic diversity within the putative paternal species (Clitachus hookeri) nested within the hybrid-daughter genome, supports the current view of a hybrid-progenitor relationship for these stick insect species.
Postmating Isolation in Six Species of Three Genera (Hoplobatrachus, Euphlyctis and Fejervarya) from Family Dicroglossidae (Anura), with Special Reference to Spontaneous Production of Allotriploids
TLDR
The present results suggest that the degree of postmating isolation reflects phylogenetic relationship, and it is speculated that allotriploids may be produced via hybridization among cryptic species.
Ploidy composition in all-hybrid frog populations in relation to ecological conditions
TLDR
P Pond-to-pond differences in LR, LLR, and LRR proportions seem to be better explained by differences in gamete production and thus inheritance patterns, which suggests that environmental parameters affect the genotype composition of all-hybrid populations less than populations containing the parental species.
Post-zygotic selection against parental genotypes during larval development maintains all-hybrid populations of the frog Pelophylax esculentus
TLDR
It is concluded that the absence of parental genotypes in all-hybrid populations is due to post-zygotic selection against them, rather than to pre-zyGotic mechanisms that might prevent their formation in the first place.

SPECIATION BY POLYPLOIDY IN TREEFROGS: MULTIPLE ORIGINS OF THE TETRAPLOID, HYLA VERSICOLOR
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among 37 populations of the diploid‐tetraploid species pair of gray treefrogs and among lineages within each species support the hypothesis of multiple origins of the tetraploids lineages.

"Why Polyploidy is Rarer in Animals Than in Plants" Revisited
TLDR
In taxa possessing a degenerate Y chromosome, polyploid speciation invariably disrupts the balance of X to autosomal gene product normally maintained by dosage compensation, and this factor may explain the distribution ofpolyploidy across taxa.
Polyploid incidence and evolution.
TLDR
New estimates for the incidence of polyploidy in ferns and flowering plants are presented based on a simple model describing transitions between odd and even base chromosome numbers, and it is indicated that ploidy changes may represent from 2 to 4% of speciation events in flowering plants and 7% in f Ferns.
The role of hybridization and introgression in the diversification of animals
TLDR
The significance of introgressive hybridization in evolution and diversification of animals is reconsidered to determine if the generally negative assessment of these processes is warranted.
Conservation of hybrid plants.
TLDR
It is argued that plant hybrid zones are hot spots of ecological and evolutionary activity and should be conserved.
Why Polyploidy is Rarer in Animals Than in Plants
TLDR
The reason for the rare occurrence of polyploidy in animals, as compared with plants, is, in essence, very simple-animals usually have two sexes which are differentiated by means of a process involving the diploid mechanism of segregation and combination.

TLDR
Intraspecific mate choice in both species is expected to be strongly influenced by variation in temperature among calling males, and simultaneous differences in pulse rate and pulse shape are required for effective species discrimination by females of H. chrysoscelis.
Natural Hybridization and Evolution
TLDR
This chapter discusses natural hybridization in the context of reproductive parameters, species concepts, and the role that technology has played in shaping human evolution.
