The evolution of post-zygotic isolation barriers by immune-triggered hybrid incompatibilities in Arabidopsis thaliana
von Reth, Marcel; Alcázar Hernández, Rubén
Universitat de Barcelona
A long-standing question in evolutionary biology is what defines a species. The biological species concept considers a species as a population of individuals that interbreeds freely and produces viable offspring. Therefore, reproductive isolation is the essence of species. Hybrid necrosis is one form of post-zygotic reproductive isolation. In this chapter, we summarize what is known to date about this phenomenon and highlight progress made in the understanding of these immune-triggered hybrid incompatibilities through our research in the plant model Arabidopsis thaliana.
