  • Offspring born to related parents may show reduced fitness due to inbreeding depression. Although evidence of inbreeding depression has accumulated for a variety of taxa during the past two decades, such analyses remain rare for primate species, probably because of their long generation time. However, inbreeding can have important fitness costs and is likely to shape life‐history traits in all living species. As a consequence, selection should have favored inbreeding avoidance via sex‐biased… CONTINUE READING
