Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the effects of inbreeding in terms of genetic models of steadily increasing complexity. It correlates theoretical effects with observations and measurements that show that inbreeding populations contain large amounts of genetic variability and that this variability is organized into highly integrated and flexible systems. The observed structure of inbreeding populations results from an appropriate integration of inbreeding into the constellation of… Expand
Frequency-Dependent Selection in Randomly Mating Populations
TLDR
It is concluded that only survival values of the genotypes for several population compositions would be sufficient to discriminate between certain models, and thus provides a basis for determining the appropriate model. Expand
QUANTITATIVE GENETICS IN PLANTS: THE EFFECT OF THE BREEDING SYSTEM ON GENETIC VARIABILITY
The expected effects of breeding system on quantitative genetic variation under various models for the maintenance of such variation are examined, with particular emphasis on the contrast betweenExpand
Inferring the genetic basis of inbreeding depression in plants.
TLDR
The scope of inferences has widened and now includes such facets as the interactions between genes, the relative abundance of major versus minor genes, life cycle stage expression, and mutation rates. Expand
The genetic organisation of populations of the inbreeding species Lolium temulentum
TLDR
The present experiment examines the variation in a series of populations of the supposedly inbreeding, annual species, Lolium temulentuin to show whether variation at the population level may be as great as in self-incompatible species. Expand
Estimation of Mating Cycle Components of Selection in Plants
TLDR
To estimate net viability selection, the composition of the array of genotypes in the population at the instant of fertilization and the time of reproduction is known, so that the probability of survival from fertilization to reproductive maturity is estimated. Expand
INBREEDING DEPRESSION AND ITS EVOLUTIONARY CONSEQUENCES
TLDR
The evidence that the evolution of breeding systems of animals and plants has been significantly influenced by the occurrence of inbreeding depression is reviewed, and the contemporary genetic theory of inmarriage depression and heterosis and the experimental data concerning the strength of in breeding depression are considered. Expand
A population dynamics model for annual plants subject to inbreeding depression
TLDR
A population dynamics model for annual plants subject to density dependent competition and a decline in mean individual fitness with inbreeding provides three distinct sets of parameter values that define the relative influence of inbreeding depression and density on population growth. Expand
THE EVOLUTION OF SELF‐FERTILIZATION AND INBREEDING DEPRESSION IN PLANTS. I. GENETIC MODELS
  • R. Lande, D. Schemske
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1985
TLDR
Genetic models are constructed which allow inbreeding depression to change with the mean selfing rate in a population by incorporating both mutation to recessive and partially dominant lethal and sublethal alleles at many loci and mutation in quantitative characters under stabilizing selection. Expand
DEPRESSION IN PLANTS. I. GENETIC MODELS
TLDR
Genetic models are constructed which allow inbreeding depression to change with the mean selfing rate in a population by incorporating both mutation to recessive and partially dominant lethal and sublethal alleles at many loci and mutation in quantitative characters under stabilizing selection. Expand
NATURAL OUTCROSSING RATES
TLDR
Analysis of F statistics suggests that biparental inbreeding as well as self-fertilization contribute to the level of homozygosity in the seed crop, and this hypothesis was tested by comparing the performance of plants produced by artificial self- and cross-pollination from three populations whose outcrossing rate estimates were 0.03, 0.26, and 0.58.

The effects of natural selection on linkage disequilibrium and relative fitness in experimental populations of Drosophila melanogaster.
TLDR
In the present experiment, the experimental procedure of CARSON was utilized to study the effects of selection on certain gene combinations and to measure the level of relative population fitness reached during the microevolutionary process. Expand

TLDR
The results of these investigations were sufficient to show that even for relatively simple cases (two loci, simple symmetrical selective values) linkage might have profound effects on the course of natural selection and, pari passu, natural selection may have major effect on the distribution of coupling and repulsion linkage in a population.

TLDR
This chapter discusses the genetic and environmental factors that influence variability in populations and the implications of variability in plant breeding, and it is suggested that among available breeding methods, mass reservoirs provide the best opportunity for the required recombination to take place.

Departures from random mating would be of particular importance in new populations that might result from the production of synthetics or the truncated sample from any of the various recurrent selection techniques. Expand

TLDR
It will be shown that even though these genotypes are counted one generation apart at exactly the same stage of the life cycle, it is not possible to obtain estimates of net fitness unless very special and unlikely conditions hold. Expand
Isolation by distance under diverse systems of mating.

The purposes of the present paper are to compare the effects of various systems of mating within continuous populations, and to present a more accurate method than before for estimating from data an important theoretical quantity, N, the effective size of population of a “neighborhood” in the sense discussed below.
