Genomics of Isle Royale Wolves Reveal Impacts of Inbreeding

Michigan Technological University

A new paper explores the genetic signatures of a pair of wolves isolated on Isle Royale, a remote national park in Lake Superior. The pair are father-daughter and share the same mother. Such close inbreeding leads to genetic anomalies, which likely are the main driver behind the wolf population crash over the past decade. Less extreme genetics help guide conservation decisions around the world.
