    ..We therefore suggest that a large part of hybrid advantage stems from immediate heterosis upon hybridization...

    Benoit Facon
    Department of Ecology and Evolution, Biology Building, University of Lausanne, 1015 Lausanne, Switzerland
    Trends Ecol Evol 21:130-5. 2006
    ..We also suggest some new directions of research, such as the assessment of the time sequence of demographic, genetic and environmental changes, using detailed temporal surveys...

    Mol Ecol 16:3484-96. 2007
    ..Individuals from temporary water habitat matured older, at a larger size and were less fecund than individuals from permanent water habitat. We discuss these findings in the light of several theories for life-history traits evolution...
