The maintenance of hybrid zones across a disturbance gradient.

Abstract:

The parapatric distribution of genetically divergent lineages in hybrid zones can be maintained by ecological differences (dispersal-independent 'ecotonal' hybrid zones), by frequency- and density-dependent interference when they intermingle and mate (dispersal-dependent 'tension' hybrid zones), or by both processes acting together. One potentially important ecological factor that has received little theoretical attention is gradients in habitat disturbance. Such gradients may be particularly...
