(p.82) Chapter 5 Hybrid fitness
Evolution through Genetic Exchange

Michael L. Arnold

Oxford University Press

This chapter illustrates the fact that hybrid genotypes, like any other set of genotypes, demonstrate a range of fitness estimates. It demonstrates this point with examples involving natural hybridization, viral recombination, and lateral gene transfer. For all classes the conclusion is the same, some hybrid/recombinant genotypes have lower, some the same, and others higher fitness estimates relative to their progenitors.

Keywords:   hybrid genotypes, hybrid fitness, genetic exchange, natural hybridization, viral recombination, lateral gene transfer
