      Den eneste barriere mod hybridisering mellem vore tre hjemhørende tjørne er således tilsyneladende kun af økologisk-bestøvningsbiologisk art (Bradshaw, 1975 og Byatt, 1975 b).
      Thus, the only barrier towards hybridization of our three indigenous hawthorns appears to be of an ecological-pollination-biological type (Bradshaw, 1975 and Bytt, 1975 b).
