Relatedness and inclusive fitness with inbreeding


, : Relatedness and inclusive fitness with inbreeding. Theoretical Population Biology 42(3): 284-307

Relatedness arising in kin selection theory is measured by a variable taking as values two pedigree indices in populations with inbreeding when selection is weak. This variable reduces to a single pedigree index when inbreeding is caused by partial selfing or partial sib-mating. General inclusive fitness formulations of kin selection models based on such a variable of relatedness are proposed.

Avoiding inbreeding, and therefore avoiding inbreeding depression in offspring fitness, is widely assumed to be adaptive in systems with biparental reproduction. However, inbreeding can also confer an inclusive fitness benefit stemming from increa...

Hamilton regarded inclusive...

We construct an inclusive fitness model to find the evolutionarily stable sex ratios in a partially sibmating diploid or haplodiploid population. We assume a constant rate of sibmating with inbred offspring incurring a fitness penalty which, under...
