Abstract: Inbreeding is a well-known phenomenon in evolutionary and conservation biology. In the 19th century, Charles Darwin demonstrated the detrimental effects of inbreeding in plants, followed by over a century of extensive research including various animal and plant taxa. The effects of consanguineous matings are particularly pronounced in fitness-determining traits, such as life-history and sexually selected traits. Accordingly, a large body of literature has developed on traits that are d... more
