Genetic and phenotypic variation in relation to population size in two plant species: Salvia pratensis and Scabiosa columbaria.



Genetic and phenotypic variation in relation to population size in two plant species: Salvia pratensis and Scabiosa columbaria.



Species conservation: a population biological approach: 89-101



Due to human activities many populations have become small, fragmented and isolated and consequently more sensitive to genetic drift and inbreeding, resulting in loss of genetic variation and fixation of deleterious alleles. This process often involves inbreeding depression and may therefore significantly affect the probability of extinction of populations.
