The impacts of inbreeding, drift and selection on genetic diversity in captive breeding populationsWilloughby, J.R.; Fernandez, N.B.; Lamb M.C.; Ivy, Jamie A.; Lacy, R.C.; DeWoody, J.A. (2015)The goal of captive breeding programmes is often to maintain genetic diversity until re‐introductions can occur.... Our results suggest that although the effects of drift may not be fully mitigated, MK reduces the loss of alleles due to inbreeding more effectively than random mating or docility selection….
