inbreeding - mating within a population.

Examples:
pure breed dogs, cats, etc., and Royal families until recently.

outbreeding - mating outside a population.

Examples:
strays, breeding a horse and a donkey to produce a mule, etc., and Royal families of today and in Cinderella stories.

What rules define what a ( or "the") "population" is ? That is, how many individuals is the minimum allowable - what allows you to say something is indeed, a population ?

In genetics, the population would be defined as a group of closely related individuals. I don't understand why this is posted in an ecology forum. Do inbreeding/outbreeding mean something slightly different in ecology?

So a population must be more than one individual ? That's it? And all closely related.

1/ Why cannot a population be just one individual ?

2/ What definition for "closely related "? Are all humans "closely related". Are all apes closely related ?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
