introgression

(ĭn′trə-grĕsh′ən)
n.

The primary concern is that GM varieties could displace native varieties and possibly cause introgressive hybridization with the wild relatives of maize, such as teosinte, which would forever alter the gene pool.
Avise (1994) suggested that divergence between genetic and phenotypic data may represent introgressive hybridization or recent divergence of pallid and shovelnose sturgeons.
