Abstract
Introgression between domestic and wild taxa is a conservation issue because it can lead to the genetic extinction of wild taxa.

Here we provide evidence from biparentally, paternally and maternally inherited genetic markers in hybridizing European wildcats (Felis silvestris silvestris) and domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus) that one cause of...
