From: Phenotypic novelty in experimental hybrids is predicted by the genetic distance between species of cichlid fish

Figure 2

Total amount of transgression ( T total ) observed in interspecific a) F1 hybrids and b) F2 hybrids as a function of genetic distance (uncorrected p-distance) between the parental species. Regression lines are from quadratic (a) and linear (b) model fitting. The solid line indicates a (significant) linear relationship in F2 hybrids, the dotted line indicates a (nonsignificant) quadratic relationship in F1 hybrids.
