Proteomic comparison of two invasive polychaete species and their naturally occurring F1-hybrids.

The mud worm genus Marenzelleria is highly invasive and is therefore studied intensively. In recently invaded habitats, sympatric populations of the sibling species Marenzelleria viridis and Marenzelleria neglecta are found. In these secondary contact zones, hybridization occurs frequently, revealing incomplete reproductive isolation between these recently… CONTINUE READING
