Heterotic effects on fitness in a wild bird population

Abstract:

The role of genetic variation in determining fitness in natural populations has been enigmatic for decades. Both theoretical and empirical work suggest that additive genetic contributions to fitness variation are small, whereas observations of inbreeding depression suggest that non-additive genetic contributions to fitness can sometimes be large. We analysed associations between genetic variability at a small number of microsatellite loci and fitness in a natural population of the collared fl...
