However, despite widespread evidence of inbreeding depression, studies of inbreeding avoidance have generated different results across populations or species. These differences could potentially reflect the confounding effects of factors such as magnitude of inbreeding depression, sex, social familiarity, state of primary sexual receptivity and mating history. We examined the influence of these pro...
