So the researchers have been studying what reproductive barriers or ecological conditions are in play that prevent hybridization.
By legal definitions, genome with a gene that could not have been incorporated by hybridization can be patented.
Breeder must use new hybridization, injecting new blood to overcome this problem.
Hybridization happens between closely related animals and does not necessarily imply that the two are the same species, he says.
The interspecies hybridization that begat today's polar bears was possible because of climate fluctuations.
By doing so, you will help protect the gene pool, which has been seriously depleted by hundreds of years of hybridization.
The garden also pioneered orchid hybridization, breeding a number of internationally acclaimed varieties.
But to the dingo, hybridization has always offered life, not extinction.
To date, scientists know of only one hybridization event in the wild between the two bear species.
The study suggests hybridization may be more important to the evolution of new animals than had previously been thought.
