How to use interbreeding in a sentence?

  1. Israel Hershkovitz:

    The co-existence of these two populations in a confined geographic region at the same time that genetic models predict interbreeding promotes the notion that interbreeding may have occurred in the Levant region.

  2. Omer Gokcumen:

    It seems that interbreeding between different early hominin species is not the exception — it’s the norm.

  3. Chris Stringer:

    This in turn may reinforce the idea that the successful spread of modern humans from Africa after about 60,000 years ago played at least a role, if not the most significant role, in the physical extinction of other forms of humans outside of Africa, however, at least some of those other forms of human did not go completely extinct, since their DNA lives on in us today through ancient interbreeding between the archaic and early modern populations. This leaves open the fascinating possibility that even floresiensis might have contributed some of its DNA to living groups in the region, if there was at least a short overlap between floresiensis and sapiens about 50,000 years ago.

  4. Zenobia Jacobs:

    So, the Denisovan ancestry in living Australian Aboriginal and New Guinean people could, therefore, be the result of direct interbreeding between their ancestors and Denisovans, but we do not know where this interaction took place.

  5. Laura Weyrich:

    These particular organisms looks to be shared between Neanderthals and humans about 120,000 year ago, or about the time that humans and Neandertals were interbreeding, these interbreeding encounters were often described as brash, rough one-night stands, but if they were swapping oral microorganisms, it means they were also swapping spit. So, potentially kissing or food sharing would have been involved, which suggests that these encounters may have been much more friendly than anyone imagined.
