Second, small, isolated populations are also vulnerable to inbreeding and genetic drift. Inbreeding occurs because individuals are forced to breed with close relatives, lowering genetic heterozygosity and often reducing fecundity and offspring viability (Ralls et al. 1986). ) As a result, inbred populations may grow more slowly and be increasingly prone to random demographic events (Mills and Smouse 1994). Genetic drift (the random loss of alleles) is also amplified in small populations, and the resulting loss of genetic variability may reduce a population’s resistance to new diseases or environmental challenges (Nei et al.
