CLOSE inbreeding is known for a variety of small mammal species1–4 for which a high probability of mortality during dispersal makes helping and delayed maturation a relatively secure fitness option5. Prolonged inbreeding, however, is usually associated with lowered fitness6,7, and it has been shown that most highly inbred small mammals8 and social insects9 have inbreeding-avoidance mechanisms that promote some degree of outbreeding. However, previous field and laboratory research on the naked… Expand
