Nonrandom mating in pikas Ochotona princeps: evidence for inbreeding between individuals of intermediate relatedness.

Abstract

The extent and effect of inbreeding in natural populations remain largely undetermined. Pikas Ochotona princeps have been considered a likely candidate for close inbreeding in natural populations due to observations of frequent juvenile philopatry (colonization of natal home range or neighbouring home range) and high levels of spatial overlap and social… (More)
