Project Details

Description

University of East Anglia PhD project (supervised with David Richardson & Cock van Oosterhout)

Inbreeding is an issue in most threatened species, yet its exact impact is poorly quantified. In populations that have undergone fragmentation and bottlenecking like the Seychelles warbler the effects of inbreeding depression are exacerbated. Alessandro is using the life history, pedigree, and genomic data of the birds on Cousin island to quantify the fitness effects of different levels of inbreeding, from a multi – generational perspective.
