  • Identifying the processes maintaining genetic variability in wild populations is a major concern in conservation and evolutionary biology. Parasite‐mediated selection may strongly affect genetic variability in wild populations. The inbreeding depression theory predicts that directional selection imposed by parasites should act against the most inbred hosts, thus favouring genetic diversity in wild populations. We have tested this prediction by evaluating the strength and shape of the… CONTINUE READING
