Quantifying the spatiotemporal dynamics in a chorus frog (Pseudacris) hybrid zone over 30 years

Engebretsen, Kristin N; Barrow, Lisa N; Rittmeyer, Eric N; Brown, Jeremy M; Moriarty Lemmon, Emily


Although theory suggests that hybrid zones can move or change structure over time, studies supported by direct empirical evidence for these changes are relatively limited. We present a spatiotemporal genetic study of a hybrid zone between Pseudacris nigrita and P. fouquettei across the Pearl River between Louisiana and Mississippi. This hybrid zone was initially characterized in 1980 as a narrow and steep "tension zone," in which hybrid populations were inferior to parentals and were maintained...[Show more]
