Mathematical model for the study of fertility and viability in inbreeding populations
- 40 Downloads
Granted that a single or complex gene is responsible for inbreeding depression, theoretical expressions for fertility and viability are obtained in different diploid populations: brother-sister, half-brother-sister, cousins and double-cousins. The conclusions of the study of viability variations according to the coefficient of parentage are proved by the results of experiments and lead to a new view of genetic load.
