Hybrids spawned Lake Victoria's rich fish diversity

Animals that have either migrated to or been introduced in Central Europe, such as the Asian bush mosquito or the Asian ladybeetle, have adapted well to their new homes due to changing climatic conditions. If these newcomers are genetically compatible with local species, they may crossbreed and produce hybrids, which can continue to evolve under local environmental conditions—a process shown to have taken place during human evolution between Homo sapiens and Neanderthals, for example.
