The maintenance of genetic polymorphism in small island populations: large mammals in the Hebrides.

Abstract:

Conventionally, small populations living on islands are expected to lose genetic variation by drift. Fluctuations in population size, combined with polygynous mating systems, are expected to contribute to the process by increasing sampling effects on genetic variation. However, in individually monitored populations of Red deer on Rum and Soay sheep on St. Kilda, which experience fluctuations in population size, two processes have been identified which mitigate loss of genetic variation.
