How to use "Sex-limited" in context?

cross species mating

Sexual reproduction can occur between different species if there is no reproductively incompatible exchange of genes. "Sexual reproduction" is the process by which genetic information is passed from one generation of cells to the next. Cross species mating is often called "sex-limited" because only certain types of cross-species mating (sex) can produce viable offspring. This is due to the fact that some animals (typically those with a higher level of sexual activity) engage in mating with organisms from other species that are not their own.

The phenomenon of cross species mating has beenAround for as long as there have been creatures that reproduce sexually.
