Using Drosophila melanogaster, we explore the consequences of restricted panmixia (RP) on the genetic load caused by segregating deleterious recessive alleles in a population where females mate a full sib with probability about (1/2) and mate randomly otherwise. We find that this breeding structure purges roughly half the load concealed in heterozygous(More)
In the C1 population of Drosophila melanogaster of moderate effective size ( approximately 500), which was genetically invariant in its origin, we studied the regeneration by spontaneous mutation of the genetic variance for two metric traits [abdominal (AB) and sternopleural (ST) bristle number] and that of the concealed mutation load for viability,(More)
