It seems that these karyological differences among varieties/genotypes within the same species may be a consequence of discrete quantitative genomic changes due to small chromosomal rearrangements which could be raised by natural or mainly by artificial intercrossing among varieties allowing them to a better adaptation to the soil and the climate in the regions they have been grown.
There have been cases of interbreeding between genetically modified rapeseeds and normal rapeseeds for horticultural purposes in the past, the group said, but the latest finding of crossing between the wild plant, whose academic name is Rorippa indica which grows in the Southeast Asia regions including Japan, and the artificially modified ones could be the first case of intercrossing found in the wild in Japan.

Darwin concluded that because crosses between different flower forms produced more seed than crosses between like flower forms, "the benefit which heterostyled dimorphic plants derive from the existence of the two forms is sufficiently obvious, namely, the intercrossing of distinct plants being thus ensured" (Darwin, 1986: p.
