Importance of adaptive introgression in the colonization of new nimetic niches in Heliconius cydno

Project: Research Project

Project Details


It is widely known that hybridization occurs between populations, races and closely related species. However, the importance of introgression in the evolutionary process is an unresolved question, especially in animals. Particularly in the latter, the known cases are those in which both the hybridization and the selection of a given allelic variant has been facilitated by anthropogenic action. Very few cases have been suggested as evidence of intro
