Inbreeding and accelarated evolution?
As you might have guessed from the subject, I've been wondering about how
inbreeding might influence the evolution of organisms.
On one hand I think inbreeding might accelarate the evolution of new
characters, as a mutated gene influencing,say, the occurence of
paedomorphosis, becomes more and more dominant in every generation ( I
On the other hand, I argumented against this very idea that inbreeding makes
organisms more and more alike due to the small gene-pool,wich thus means
that characters are less likely to change.
Could someone say more about this?
