However, the challenge is that this hybrid vigor
appears to get lost across each generation of the plant.
These hybrids should grow better than the parent species because of hybrid vigor
and show stronger disease resistance while fetching the same price in fresh fish markets.
When parents contribute very different genes to an offspring, as in their case, the resulting organism possesses what scientists call "hybrid vigor
." "It's a widely known effect in other areas, but no one had studied it in coffee," says Benoit Bertrand, a researcher for the French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development and a leading authority on coffee breeding.
NILI-Ravi cross-bred buffalo is an admirable example of hybrid vigor
as the traits from both Nili and Ravi breeds were naturally inculcated into this new breed.
Although, commercially the two botanical groups are known only as "Robusta coffee," separation of botanical varieties allows the systematic production of hybrid progenies, exploiting the hybrid vigor
manifested in the intervarietal crossing, with the possibility of bringing together in the same genotype the best characteristics of the botanical varieties Conilon and Robusta.
This invasive shrub grows rapidly via hybrid vigor
(Williams et al.
Hybrid rice has both greater vigor and higher yield than either parent variety - this is commonly called 'hybrid vigor
As Gould noted about these projects, "although the two disciplines may usually communicate in different dialects, when juxtaposed they strikingly reflect upon and enhance one another." Purcell calls it "hybrid vigor
." And when she is photographing junkyard finds that she finds fascinating, she asks "When does an object become worthy of a scientific name?"
Additive gene action is effectively responsive to selection whereas, non-additive gene action (dominance and epistatic) enhances the hybrid vigor
in cross combination of inbred lines.
canephora, a program of reciprocal recurrent selection was conducted using the hybrid vigor
observed between genotypes of different origins [8, 23, 24].
Russian comfrey demonstrates hybrid vigor
and grows larger and faster than true comfrey.
The papaya hybrids are obtained by the crossing between progenitors with different genetic pools, resulting in high hybrid vigor
materials (MACEDO et al., 2013).
