Polyploidy and inter-species hybridization occur naturally but can also be artificially induced. Plant breeders look at the role of both in improving the yield and quality of crops. Among their topics are allopolyploidy and interspecific hybridization for wheat improvement, polyploidy in maize: the impact of homozygosity and hybridity on phenotype, broadening the genetic basis for crop improvement: interspecific hybridization within and between ploidy levels in Helianthus, oat improvement and innovation using wild genetic resources (Poaceas, Avena spp.): elevating "oats" to a new level and stature, and interspecific hybridization for chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)
