Inbreeding, the mating of close kin, and outbreeding, the mating of distant relatives or related organisms, have long been important subjects to evolutionary biologists. In this volume, 26 experts in evolution, behaviour and genetics examine the causes and consequences of these processes. The contributors ask whether inbreeding is as problematic as biologists thought, and in attempting to answer this, draw on examples from theoretical and real studies on wild and captive populations. A valuable text for researchers in evolutionary biology, behaviour, ecology and conservation biology.
