Fragmentation of animal and plant populations typically leads to genetic erosion and increased probability of extirpation. [...] Key Method We used an extended form of the breeders' equation to predict the probability of OD due to adaptive differentiation between recently isolated population fragments as a function of intensity of selection, genetic diversity, effective population sizes, and generations of isolation. Empirical data indicated that populations in similar environments had not developed OD even…Expand
Natural selection and outbreeding depression suggest adaptive differentiation in the invasive range of a clonal plant
TLDR
The results indicate a source-of-origin effect, consistent with outbreeding depression exposed by mating between introduced and native populations, and suggest that well-established non-native populations may pay a high fitness cost during subsequent bouts of admixture with native populations.

Outbreeding depression and breeding system evolution in small, remnant populations of Primula vulgaris: consequences for genetic rescue
TLDR
Evaluated offspring fitness after selfing and outcrossing within and among three very small and isolated remnant populations of the heterostylous plant Primula vulgaris, finding that one population is evolving homostyly, showing a thrum morph with an elongated style and high autonomous fruit and seed set. Expand
Fitness costs associated with ancestry to isolated populations of an endangered species
TLDR
The Pacific pocket mouse persists in three isolated populations in southern California, and a strong negative correlation between individual reproductive success and ancestry to Dana Point, leading to a rapid decrease of Dana Point alleles is seen. Expand
Effects of inbreeding and interpopulation crosses on performance and plasticity of two generations of offspring of a declining grassland plant.
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of selfing and of within and between population crosses on reproduction and the performance of two generations of offspring of the declining grassland plant Saxifraga granulata finds continuous inbreeding may drastically reduce the fitness of plants, but effects may be environment-dependent. Expand
Effects of genetic distance on heterosis in a Drosophila melanogaster model system
TLDR
The results show that outcrossing can have very strong positive fitness consequences for genetically depauperate populations, and the potential for heterosis was proportional to the level of inbreeding depression. Expand
Experimental test of genetic rescue in isolated populations of brook trout
TLDR
Results provide much‐needed experimental data to inform the potential effectiveness of genetic rescue‐motivated translocations and strong evidence of hybrid vigour was observed through significantly larger body sizes of hybrid offspring relative to resident offspring in all recipient populations. Expand
Genetic rescue of small inbred populations: meta-analysis reveals large and consistent benefits of gene flow.
TLDR
There are no scientific impediments to the widespread use of outcrossing to genetically rescue inbred populations of naturally outbreeding species, provided potential crosses have a low risk of outbreeding depression. Expand
Inbreeding and outbreeding depression in Stylidium hispidum: implications for mixing seed sources for ecological restoration
TLDR
Comparing intraspecific F1 hybrid performance and molecular marker differentiation among four populations of Stylidium hispidum, a species endemic to Southwestern Australia, finds evidence of outbreeding depression in long-distance hybrids, and inbreeding depression among progeny of within-population crosses, relative to short- distance hybrids, suggesting an intermediate optimal outcrossing distance in this species. Expand
A systematic review of phenotypic responses to between-population outbreeding
TLDR
This study demonstrates consistent effects of trait type on responses to intraspecific outbreeding, and indicates the potential for outbreeding depression in the F2, and reveals significant heterogeneity in outbreeding responses within and among studies. Expand
Genetic rescue versus outbreeding depression in Vallisneria americana: Implications for mixing seed sources for restoration
TLDR
The data show that mixing sources from different populations and regions has both benefits and drawbacks, and minimizing the risks of outbreeding and inbreeding depression, presented as a mostly dichotomous issue in the restoration literature is not an either-or issue in V. americana. 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
Modeling Factors Affecting the Severity of Outbreeding Depression
TLDR
Fitness problems caused by disruption of local adaptation were stronger but more transient than those caused by a disruption of in- trinsic coadaptation, and recurrent transfer of only one migrant per generation into a population of 100 individuals could cause as much or more damage as a one-time 50:50 mixture.

Genetic consequences of habitat fragmentation in plant populations: susceptible signals in plant traits and methodological approaches
TLDR
It is concluded that current conservation efforts in fragmented habitats should be focused on common or recently rare species and mainly outcrossing species and outline important issues that need to be addressed in future research on this area. Expand
Do Plant Populations Purge Their Genetic Load? Effects of Population Size and Mating History on Inbreeding Depression
TLDR
Regression analyses suggest that purging is most likely to ameliorate ID for early traits, but these declines are typically modest (5–10%). Expand
Genetic consequences of many generations of hybridization between divergent copepod populations.
TLDR
Results suggest that hybrid inferiority in early generations gave way to hybrid superiority in later generations, and computer simulations showed that selection must be invoked to explain the shift in allele frequencies. Expand
Does parental divergence predict reproductive compatibility
TLDR
The relationship between divergence and compatibility is also increasingly relevant to evolutionary biology, because recent work on the genetic architecture of reproductive isolation has fuelled a renewed interest in speciation rates and processes. Expand

TLDR
Both recombinant and nonrecombinant backcross hybrids showed a decline in fitness correlated with population divergence, indicating that segregation among chromosomes contributes to the breakup of coadaptation. Expand
Inbreeding and Outbreeding Depression in Natural Populations of Chamaecrista fasciculata (Fabaceae)
TLDR
It appears that crossing populations of up to intermediate distances of hundreds of kilometers has a short-term beneficial effect on progeny performance through F1, and that longer-term effects are not necessarily disruptive of fitness, at least relative to parental performance. Expand
POPULATION DIFFERENTIATION IN AN ANNUAL LEGUME: GENETIC ARCHITECTURE
TLDR
This study used a quantitative genetic design to quantify the contribution of epistasis to population divergence for fitness components of a native annual legume, Chamaecrista fasciculata, and concludes that the epistasis documented in this study reflects interactions among linked loci. Expand
Between a rock and a hard place: evaluating the relative risks of inbreeding and outbreeding for conservation and management
TLDR
Managers can minimize the risks of both inbreeding and outbreeding by using intentional hybridization only for populations clearly suffering from inbreeding depression, maximizing the genetic and adaptive similarity between populations, and testing the effects of hybridization for at least two generations whenever possible.
