Figure 1 Pedigree of the Scandinavian wolf population. Boxes indicate breeding pairs and arrows trace the ancestry of male (blue) and female (red) in each pair. Colours of boxes indicate how the genotype of the wolves in the pair was determined. Unfilled boxes indicate pairs with missing genotype. Pairs are fitted to the time-scale on top according to their year of first reproduction. The number of winter pups in first litters and inbreeding coefficients for offspring, are indicated. If number of pups was determined as a range (e.g. 4-5) we used the mean value (e.g. 4.5).
Figure 2 The number of pups that survived to winter for first-born litters in relation to the inbreeding coefficient of the pups. Small dots refer to one data point each, medium sized to two data points and large to four data points. Inbreeding levels corresponding to parent-offspring or full-sibling mating, and self-fertilization are indicated.
