Heterozygosity-fitness correlations in a bottlenecked island species: a case study on the Seychelles warbler

Brouwer, Lyanne; Komdeur, Jan; Richardson, David S.

Description

We used capture-mark-recapture models to investigate the effects of both individual and parental heterozygosity, measured at microsatellite loci on the survival of Seychelles warblers (Acrocephalus sechellensis), an endemic island species which went through a severe population bottleneck in the middle of the last century. We found that an individual's survival was not correlated with multilocus heterozygosity, or with heterozygosity at any specific locus. However, maternal, but not paternal,...[Show more]
