Ability of several populations of theMimulus luteas complex to intercross was compared with an estimate of genetic divergence of the populations derived from a Prim network based on 134 traits. On the average we find that low levels of genetic differentiation result in heterosis or partial interference with ability to intercross and that with increasing genetic divergence, these are replaced with increasingly strong barriers to gene exchange.
