JC> Someone on this echo once said that a species had been bred in a JC> laboratory somewhere, and that this species had been "evolved"[sic] JC> into a new non-cross-fertile species. It happens hundreds of times. It's no big deal. JC> Could someone please cite the source of this information? JC> Or was that just a hoax or something? A "hoax?" How could it be a "hoax?"
