What will be some consequences of Hybridization?



  1. 0 Votes

    Hybridization between biological species is a process that combines the genes of two parent species to create a new species with characteristics of both parents.  This process does not have a predictable effect, as there is no guarantee which parental characteristics will be expressed in the hybridized offspring.  It could result in a species that is better adapted to its environment or is able to out-compete members of its parental species.  It could also preserve a desirable trait from one parent species that is threatened with extinction.  Hybridization happens with and without human intervention, and when humans intervene, it is often with the aim of creating a species that will be more desirable for our use.  As the outcomes are not guaranteed, it is important to remember that the process has potential for great ecological impact.
