Resumen: "Gene flow among crops and their wild relatives is an active study area in evolutionary biology and agronomy, because genetic exchange between them may impact their evolutionary trajectories and increase the genetic variation of the cultivated lineages. Mexico is a center of diversity for the genus Cucurbita that includes pumpkins, squashes and gourds. Gene flow between domesticated and wild species has been reported as common in Cucurbita"
