Studies evaluating the impact of inbreeding depression on population viability of threatened species tend to focus on the effects of inbreeding at a single life-history stage (e.g., juvenile survival). We examined the effects of inbreeding across the full life-history continuum, from survival up to adulthood, to subsequent reproductive success, and to the recruitment of second-generation offspring, in wild Takahe ( Porphyrio hochstetteri ) by analyzing pedigree and fitness data collected over… Expand
Variable inbreeding effects across life‐history stages in a captive carnivorous mammal population
TLDR
The results indicate that even in populations maintained in benign conditions of captivity, deleterious effects of inbreeding are differentially expressed across life-history stages and underscore that investigating a single life- history stage could lead to erroneous conclusions about inbreeding and purging effects, misguiding management of captive populations. Expand
Life stage-specific inbreeding depression in long-lived Pinaceae species depends on population connectivity
TLDR
It is suggested that life stage data should be included in inbreeding depression studies and that inbreeding needs to be managed over life stages in commercial populations of long-lived plants. Expand
Multiple life-stage inbreeding depression impacts demography and extinction risk in an extinct-in-the-wild species
TLDR
Impacts of inbreeding depression across life-history stages for an extinct-in-the-wild species and incorporation of multiple life-stage B into population models can be important for informed conservation management decision-making show magnitude of B can translate into demographic consequences. Expand
Cryptic inbreeding depression in a growing population of a long‐lived species
TLDR
The results illustrate that substantial, cryptic inbreeding depression may still be present when a population is growing, especially in long‐lived species with overlapping generations. Expand
Inbreeding depression across the lifespan in a wild mammal population
TLDR
Investigating inbreeding depression in a range of life history traits and fitness in a wild population of red deer in Scotland using individual inbreeding coefficients derived from dense Single-Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) data finds associations between Fgrm and annual breeding success in both sexes, and between maternal inbreeding coefficient and offspring survival. Expand
Inbreeding and inbreeding depression in endangered red wolves (Canis rufus)
TLDR
The evaluation of inbreeding and inbreeding depression in a small, re‐introduced population of red wolves in North Carolina highlighted the variable expression of in breeding depression across traits and the need to measure a number of different traits when evaluating inbreeding depressed in a wild population. Expand
Environmental conditions during early life determine the consequences of inbreeding in Agrostemma githago (Caryophyllaceae)
TLDR
It is found that deleterious recessive alleles have not been effectively purged from the focal population, the expression of inbreeding depression decreases over the course of the life cycle, and a stressful early environment reduces the variance in inbreeding depressed expressed later in life, but does not consistently influence the relative fitness of inbred versus outcrossed individuals.

Heterozygosity-fitness correlations in a continental island population of Thorn-tailed Rayadito.
TLDR
The results along with the long-term demographic stability of the study population contradict the hypothesis that inbreeding depression occurs in this population of thorn-tailed rayadito and predict a positive relationship between individual heterozygosity and fitness-related traits. Expand
Effects of inbreeding on fitness-related traits in a small isolated moose population
TLDR
The results suggest that severe inbreeding in moose has both indirect effects on fitness through delayed birth and lower juvenile body mass, as well as separate direct effects, as there still was a significant relationship between f and twinning rate after accounting for birth date and body mass as calf. Expand
The inbreeding strategy of a solitary primate, Microcebus murinus
TLDR
Results indicate that sex‐biased dispersal is a primary inbreeding avoidance mechanism at the population level, and mating biases represent an additional strategy that may mitigate residual inbreeding costs at the individual level, which explain the rarity of inbreeding and the lack of detectable inbreeding depression in this large, genetically diverse population.

Inbreeding depression along a life‐history continuum in the great tit
TLDR
Analysis of the effects of close inbreeding, based on observations of mating between relatives, in a large, free‐living noninsular great tit (Parus major) population monitored over 41’years, shows that inbreeding depression acts independently at each life‐history stage in this population, and suggests that estimates of the fitness costs of inbreeding must focus on the entire life cycle.

TLDR
Examination of data from a long‐term demographic study of an insular population of song sparrows and evidence for inbreeding depression shows that costs of inbreeding in this population were substantial and slightly above those expected from laboratory studies. Expand
Severe inbreeding depression in collared flycatchers (Ficedula albicollis)
TLDR
The results illustrate how severe inbreeding depression and considerable genetic load may exist in natural populations, but detecting them may require extensive long–term datasets. Expand
Seasonal and lifetime reproductive consequences of inbreeding in the great tit Parus major
TLDR
It is concluded that the costs of mating with a relative in the short term do not necessarily imply lifetime fitness consequences, and individuals may have scope for avoidance of inbreeding after inbreeding depression. Expand
Inbreeding effects in wild populations.
TLDR
This work reveals that levels of inbreeding depression vary across taxa, populations and environments, but are usually substantial enough to affect both individual and population performance. Expand
Realistic levels of inbreeding depression strongly affect extinction risk in wild populations
TLDR
In the stochastic computer projections, 12 diploid lethal equivalents of inbreeding depression (with purging) decreased median times to extinction by an average of 37%. Expand
Inbreeding and loss of genetic variation in a reintroduced population of Mauritius Kestrel.
TLDR
A conservation genetic assessment of a small, reintroduced population of Mauritius Kestrel to determine whether genetic deterioration has occurred since its reintroduction suggests that schemes to monitor genetic variation after reintroduction should be an integral component of endangered species recovery programs.

Quantifying and managing the loss of genetic variation in a free-ranging population of takahe through the use of pedigrees
TLDR
The results demonstrate the value of maintaining pedigrees for wild populations, especially in the years immediately after a translocation event, and suggest that 90% genetic diversity could be maintained over the next 100 years. Expand
An investigation of inbreeding depression and purging in captive pedigreed populations
TLDR
The study re-emphasises the necessity to avoid inbreeding in captive breeding programmes and shows that purging cannot be relied upon to remove deleterious alleles from zoo populations. Expand
Sex‐Specific Consequences of Recent Inbreeding in an Ancestrally Inbred Population of New Zealand Takahe
TLDR
It is concluded from the pedigree analysis that island Takahe are undergoing further inbreeding depression, but the reduction in fitness appears to be expressed in inbred females only. Expand
