The article presents a study that deals with hybridization processes of five species of oaks from South Spain. Focal to the study are hybrids in which Querus coccifera is a parent. They include Q. coccifera x Q. faginea subspecies broteroi, Q. coccifera x Q. lusitianica, Q. coccifera x Q. rotundifolia and Q. coccifera x Q. suber. Based on the results of the study, the authors were able to evaluate the concentration of hybridization processes in contact areas between woods and cultivated lands.

    Natural hybrids among the specialized terrestrial oil-secreting orchids of South Africa are extremely rare even where multiple closely related species co-occur. We found putative hybrids between Pterygodium catholicum Sw. and P. acutifolium Lindl., two closely related oil-secreting orchids that...

    Hybridization between species has the potential to change invasion dynamics. Field observations suggest that spotted knapweed and diffuse knapweed, two ecologically and economically destructive invasive plants, hybridize in their introduced range. As a first step towards understanding whether...
