Inbreeding is a biological phenomenon of special relevance in domestic species in which its influence has been typically associated with reductions in animal fitness. Nevertheless, recent research suggests substantial founder-specific variability in terms of inbreeding depression on some productive traits, although this centred on a very reduced number of founders. This research focuses on the modelling of founder-specific inbreeding depression (FSID) effects from a more general point of view… CONTINUE READING
