Sample text

For example, the Red Siskin *The D-M model’s reasoning: if an ancestral population has genotype aabb, a mutation (allele A) can be fixed by selection (or drift) in a descendant population if Aabb and AAbb aren’t detrimental. Also, another allele (B) can become fixed in a second population if aaBb and aaBB are not unfavorable. Given this situation, Coyne and Orr (1998, p. 295) say it is “entirely possible that when the AAbb and aaBB populations come into contact, the resulting AaBb hybrids could be sterile or inviable.

Short and Horne (2001, p. 413) say three populations (osculans, pintoi, and theresae), formerly treated as races of the Channel-billed Toucan (Ramphastos vitellinus), are now considered to be of hybrid origin. In Australia, three other populations, roseicapillus, kuhli, and albiceps, are still treated as races of the Galah (Cacatua roseicapillus). All hybridize where they come in contact. However, kuhli is geographically and morphologically intermediate between the other two and is therefore a likely product of hybridization between them (Ford 1987; Hall and Frith 1974; Higgins et al.

22 Handbook of Avian Hybrids of the World Split Ranges. Since movement or expansion of a hybrid zone results from one bird taking over range from another, there is always the potential for the receding bird’s range to be split. For example, the advancing front might reach a coastline. Under such circumstances, the distribution of the bird losing ground could become discontinuous, splitting on either side of the range of the advancing bird. This process may account for certain situations where a bird has two ranges separated by the range of another bird (also known as a “leapfrog” distribution).
