Abstract

The effect of inbreeding in wildlife species has received attention from several sources. Recently the 'inbreeding theory' as a possible explanation of cycles in game populations was given careful consideration by a group of wildlife experts and geneticists. Scott's symposium (1944) consisting of comments received from eight authorities revealed unanimity in a decision that inbreeding is not the causative factor.
