Historical Examples of outbreeding
The due adjustment of inbreeding and outbreeding is always a difficult problem of policy for breeders of animals.
Outbreeding (unless too far out) develops vigor at the expense of the characteristic traits.
If so, there would be a school in which the advantages of outbreeding would appear as a fact, although not explained.
- (intr) anthropol to produce offspring through sexual relations outside a particular family or tribe
- to breed (animals that are not closely related) or (of such animals) to be bred
- The mating or breeding of distantly related or unrelated individuals. Outbreeding often produces offspring of superior quality because it increases homozygosity (the occurrence of two alleles for the same trait at corresponding positions on homologous chromosomes), thereby sharply reducing the risk of deleterious recessive genes being expressed. Crossbreeding is the most common form of outbreeding.
