Brief Communication Problems in Measuring Among-family Variation in Inbreeding Depression 1

Abstract

Understanding the sources of variation in inbreeding depression within populations is important for understanding the evolution of selfing rates. At the population level, inbreeding depression is due to decreased heterozygosity caused by inbreeding, which decreases overdominance and increases the frequency of expression of recessive deleterious alleles… (More)
