CONT

L'hybridation spontanée intervient fréquemment entre l'avoine cultivée et la folle-avoine sauvage; les hybrides naturels offrent tous les intermédiaires entre le type cultivé et le type sauvage. Ces «formes fatuoides» ne représentent pas un retour vers le type ancestral, mais simplement un produit de croisement survenu fortuitement dans la nature.
