Perhaps this is a bit simple for some of you but it occurs to me that man
hybridizes to mirror himself in immortality by putting his name on the
offspring "he" has created.  Nature hybridizes for a systematic effect,
survival.  Man hybridizes many times haphazardly but can maintain the
offspring artificially.
To me one of the best examples of ruining a species by hybridization are
meat cows.  They need winches to pull out their young, they would not
survive in nature at all.
This is a tremendously interesting discussion!
