    I like this idea

    With genomic scale data revealing patterns of introgression in a growing number of organisms, across most kingdoms, we need to develop a clear understanding of the process – when does it occur, what parts of the genome does it involve, and what impact does it eventually have on diversification, particularly in species rich tropical groups. Progress on this topic will occur through both empirical and theoretical work and needs to incorporate network effects, where gene flow is occurring among a large number of species in a complicated geographic and temporal pattern. This understanding of the process will also contribute substantially to our ability to conserve diversity and to enable these groups to adapt to the rapidly changing environments of the Anthropocene.
