Effect of inbreeding on reproduction and juvenile performance in two marine gastropods with contrasting reproductive patterns.Pechenik, Jan A.
Many species avoid inbreeding through dispersal of individuals away from their natal groups or sites. Benthic marine invertebrates with long free-living larval stages generally possess great dispersal potential and are therefore expected to have a small chance of inbreeding in the field. Species that lack such dispersive larval stages should have a higher likelihood of inbreeding. If such direct-d... read more
