Data from: Testing the influence of family structure and outbreeding depression on heterozygosity-fitness correlations in small populations

Helene Jourdan-Pineau, Joy Folly, Pierre-André Crochet & Patrice David
Theory predicts that positive Heterozygosity-Fitness Correlations (HFC) arise as a consequence of inbreeding, which is often assumed to have a strong impact in small, fragmented populations. Yet according to empirical data, HFC in such populations seem highly variable and impredictible. We here discuss two overlooked phenomena that may contribute to this variation. First, in a small population, each generation may consist of a few families. This generates random correlations between particular alleles and fitness (AFC,...
