Induced dispersal in wildlife management: Experimental evaluation of the risk of hybrid breakdown and the benefit of hybrid vigor in the F1 generation

Holleley, Clare E.; Nichols, Richard A.; Whitehead, Michael; Gunn, Melissa R.; Gupta, Jyoutsna; Sherwin, William

Description

Management practices often aim to increase the level of gene flow by either: introducing animals from captive breeding programs, translocating animals from abundant areas, or increasing the chance of animals dispersing between populations by creating habitat corridors. These practices provide opportunity for the hybrid offspring of introduced and resident animals to experience either increased fitness (hybrid vigor) or decreased fitness (hybrid breakdown). There is very little quantitative data...[Show more]
