Wild populations of animals and plants have evolved naturally over millions of years through a process of natural selection in contrast to human controlled selective breeding or artificial selection for desirable traits from the human point of view. Normally, these two methods of reproduction operate independently of one another. Background
Hybridisation means the breeding of two different types of plants or animals. For example, a mule is the result of the union between a horse and a donkey, two different species. The resulting animal has desirable characteristics from both parents but all mules are sterile and cannot produce any offspring. Hybridisation also occurs between different varieties or breeds within a species, such as dog, cattle or sheep breeds. Many, probably most agricultural animals and plants are the result of hybridisation. This results in offspring with desirable characteristics...
