These data were produced under a three major cluster solution, which corresponds to the trihybrid continental ancestry model that is common among genetic studies of Latin American populations, including Hispanic persons of largely Mexican descent (Bryc et al.
Ecuadorian Mestizos can be considered a trihybrid population resulting from the admixture of Amerindian, European, and African populations, having estimated average proportions of ~73, ~19, and ~8% in autosomal cells, respectively [20].
This may occur because the mestizo Ecuadorian population is considered a trihybrid, containing genes originated from America and descendants of Native Asians, Europeans, and Africans [93].
However, genetic admixture analysis has shown that it is a trihybrid population, with genetic contributions from Native Americans (10.4%) and Africans (5.6%) [43], which could explain our slightly higher than expected results.
The trihybrid ancestry of the Costa Rican population (Segura-Wang, Raventos, Escamilla, & Barrantes, 2010), and the key geographic location of the country makes Costa Ricans fairly representative of the human genetic diversity in Central America.
Limes are apparent hybrids of citron and papedas (Scora 1975) or trihybrid cross of citron pummelo and Microcitrus (Barrett and Rhodes 1976).

In the final chapter, the authors propose transforming blended learning (combination of learning approaches) into trihybrid learning (combination of classroom learning, web use, and 3D VLE) because it gives both faculty and students a flexibility that wouldn't be possible in traditional learning environments.
Mendel actually did a trihybrid cross in which two of the three genes were on the same chromosome.
A dihybrid cross involves inheritance patterns for two traits considered simultaneously, a trihybrid cross involves three simultaneous traits, and so on.
