The magnitude of inbreeding depression is often larger in traits closely related to fitness, such as survival and fecundity, compared to morphological traits. Reproductive behaviour is also closely associated with fitness, and therefore expected to show strong inbreeding depression. Despite this, little is known about how reproductive behaviour is affected by inbreeding. Here we show that one generation of full‐sib mating results in a decrease in male reproductive performance in the least… Expand
Effects of inbreeding on life-history traits and sexual competency in decorated crickets
TLDR
Levels of inbreeding depression in a number of fitness-related reproductive parameters of female decorated crickets, Gryllodes sigillatus, reveal that inbreeding may have unexpected consequences for sexual competency and highlight the importance of considering mating behaviour when assessing effects of in breeding within populations.

Inbreeding depression of mating behavior and its reproductive consequences in a freshwater snail
TLDR
Moderate inbreeding depression of male and female mating behavior in the simultaneously hermaphroditic freshwater snail Physa acuta is studied to test whether there is inbreeding depressed of mating behavior, and whether the potential of mate competition and mate choice has an effect on the strength of inbreeding Depression.

Inbreeding depression of sexually selected traits and attractiveness in the zebra finch
TLDR
This work used full-sib mating to investigate the effects of inbreeding on viability, attractiveness, morphology and potentially secondary sexual traits in male and female zebra finches, Taeniopygia guttata, finding strong negative effects in males and females. Expand
Male inbreeding status affects female fitness in a seed‐feeding beetle
TLDR
It is demonstrated that mating with inbred males has significant direct consequences for the fitness of female C. maculatus, likely mediated by effects of inbreeding status on the number of sperm in male ejaculates. Expand
Inbreeding avoidance in a poeciliid fish (Heterandria formosa)
TLDR
A postcopulatory, prefertilization, inbreeding avoidance mechanism in the least killifish, Heterandria formosa, a species in which males can force matings is reported, suggesting that females do this by reducing the amount of sibling sperm in their reproductive system. Expand
Inbreeding Alters the Chemical Phenotype and Mating Behavior of a Beetle
TLDR
It is suggested that inbreeding events have the potential to affect sexual selection of chemical signaling traits and evolutionary processes underlying mating strategies and might have consequences for the population dynamics and development of the individuals. Expand
Males Benefit from Mating with Outbred Females in Drosophila littoralis: Male Choice for Female Genetic Quality?
The evolution and expression of mate choice behaviour in either sex depends on the sex-specific combination of mating costs, benefits of choice and constraints on choice. If the benefits of choiceExpand
Population density does not influence male gonadal investment in the Least Killifish, Heterandria formosa
TLDR
The combined results indicate that gonadal investment in male H. formosa is not related to variation in population density, and there was no evidence for a correlation between population density and relative testis mass. Expand
Inbreeding and inbreeding depression in endangered red wolves (Canis rufus)
TLDR
The evaluation of inbreeding and inbreeding depression in a small, re‐introduced population of red wolves in North Carolina highlighted the variable expression of in breeding depression across traits and the need to measure a number of different traits when evaluating inbreeding depressed in a wild population. Expand
Evidence for inbreeding depression in a species with limited opportunity for maternal effects
TLDR
It is suggested that due to limited potential for maternal effects to influence these traits that any reduction in offspring fitness, or lack thereof, can be explained by inbreeding depression rather than by maternal effects. Expand

The Effects of Inbreeding on Male Courtship Behaviour and Coloration in Guppies
TLDR
The guppy Poecilia reticulata is used to investigate the influence of parental relatedness on sexual behaviour and colour pattern variation in adult male offspring and the finding that sexual ornamentation did not show similar inbreeding depression to courtship behaviour may be due to differences in the genetic basis of these traits. Expand
Captivity masks inbreeding effects on male mating success in butterflies
TLDR
It is shown that a small decrease in mating success of captive inbred male butterflies in cages is greatly accentuated in conditions with unconstrained flight, showing that the behaviours underlying patterns of mating can be profoundly influenced by a history of inbreeding or by any restraining experimental conditions. Expand
Use of microsatellite paternity analysis to determine male mating success in the western mosquitofish, Gambusia affinis
TLDR
Results from behavior experiments showed that, when in direct competition, large males were more aggressive and attempted more copulations than small males, suggesting that indirect measures of mating are good predictors of actual male reproductive success in mosquitofish. Expand
Inbreeding depression and genetic load of sexually selected traits: how the guppy lost its spots
TLDR
Analysis of the effects of inbreeding on sexually selected traits in the male guppy, Poecilia reticulata, from Trinidad, and found a significant decline in the frequency of mating behaviour and colour spots suggests that these traits could reflect the genetic condition or health of males, and thus may be informative mate‐cue characters for female choice as suggested by the ‘good genes’ model. Expand
Female choice and the relatedness of mates in the guppy (Poecilia reticulata)
TLDR
The results suggest that female guppies do not discriminate against closely related males or their sperm, and there is no significant improvement in the number of offspring produced by females mating to both related and unrelated males. Expand
Inbreeding depression and male-mating behavior inDrosophila melanogaster
TLDR
Five experimental lines of Drosophila melanogaster made isogenic for chromosome 2 were evaluated for their male-mating ability and, subsequently, male courtship behavior, and all lines showed significant reductions in overall mating ability. Expand
Inbreeding and outbreeding depression in male courtship song characters in Drosophila montana

TLDR
In Drosophila montana, male courtship song frequency is closely associated with male Courtship success and offspring survival, whereas pulse train characters (interpulse interval, pulse number and pulse train length) are not associated with these male fitness components, and the possible role of outbreeding depression and epistasis in speciation is discussed.

Repeatable female preferences, mating order and mating success in the poeciliid fish, Heterandria formosa
TLDR
The results of this study illustrate that even significantly repeatable female preferences do not translate into male mating success, which is an assumption of many examinations of the importance of female choice in sexual selection. Expand
Single locus complementary sex determination in Hymenoptera: an "unintelligent" design?
TLDR
Behavioural adaptations to avoid matings between relatives include active dispersal from natal patches and mating preferences for non-relatives, and a number of hypothetical adaptations to sl-CSD which should be considered in future studies of this insect order. Expand

TLDR
A model that derives expected values of inbreeding tolerance, that is, the magnitude of in breeding depression that is required to make individuals avoid inbreeding, for different animal life histories and parental investment patterns is developed. Expand
