Founder Effects, Inbreeding, and Loss of Genetic Diversity in Four Avian Reintroduction Programs
22 Mar 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Ian Jamieson
The number of individuals translocated and released as part of a reintroduction is often small, as is the final established population, because the reintroduction site is typically small. Small founder and small resulting populations can result in population bottlenecks, which are associated with...
