Outbreeding depression in the common frog, Rana temporaria

Abstract:

Theory suggests that parental relatedness is a continuous variable with a fitness optimum that we heretoforth will refer to as 'optimal outbreeding'. In the present paper, we test this proposition from a conservation (translocation) perspective. Amphibians are facing a global decline and many amphibian populations are today small and threatened by extinction. Because genetic differentiation is often high between amphibian populations, they could be particularly sensitive to outbreeding depres...
