|Title:||Genetic variation among trait groups and apparent absence of close inbreeding in grey-crowned babblers|
|Abstract:||The grey-crowned babbler, Pomastostomus temporalis, is a non-migratory species with delayed breeding and prolonged association of young with siblings and parents. Since these conditions are conducive to incestuous matings, we have studied allozymic variation in a population in southeastern Queensland, to evaluate the possibility of close inbreeding. Eight of 20 loci tested were polymorphic, with an average proportion of heterozygous loci individual of 9.4%. No deficiency of heterozygotes was found, indicating the absence of detectable inbreeding. Some mechanism that prevents inbreeding seems to be present.|
