Hybrids

Means "of two origins" or "created by mixing" or colloquially (sometimes also pejoratively) also mongrel, bastard or blendling. In scientific linguistic usage, this is understood to mean a living being (plant, animal) that has come into being by crossing parents of different breeding lines (genus = genus or species = species). Spontaneous crosses that occur in nature without human intervention are called natural hybrids, especially in the case of plants. In viticulture, hybrids are only the results of crosses between different species or genera. Strictly speaking, however, crosses of the same species are already hybrids (intraspecific = within the species). As a rule, however, only interspecific or intergeneric crosses are understood as hybrids
