We investigate the continuous dependence of the minimal speed of propagation and the profile of the corresponding travelling wave solution of Fisher-type reaction-diffusion equations

$\vartheta_t = (D(\vartheta)\vartheta_x)_x + f(\vartheta)$

with respect to both the reaction term $f$ and the diffusivity $D$.
We also introduce and discuss the concept of fast heteroclinic in this context, which allows to interpret the appearance of sharp heteroclinic in the case of degenerate diffusivity ($D(0)=0)$.
