  • This study investigated the magnitude of inbreeding depression in fecundity, and whether the depression is purged during six generations of sib mating in the bulb mite, Rhizoglyphus robini. The progeny resulting from a single generation of brother–sister mating suffered significant inbreeding depression in fecundity. During the following six generations of continuous sib-mating, 58% lines were lost, 45% because of sterility and 13% because of preadult mortality. The lines were then outcrossed… CONTINUE READING
