Abstract
Mating with a member of another species can seriously reduce an organism's fitness, so mechanisms ought to evolve to prevent it where hybridizing species meet. This old idea of 'reinforcement' has found new support in an elegant pair of studies of the ecological genetics of flower colour in an annual herb.
