Example text

Studies on inbreeding may be conducted both for their empirical value and for the insight they yield into the genetic dynamics of populations. In principle, the most appropriate populations to provide, through studies of inbreeding effects, an appraisal of the mutation-selection balance are the remaining relatively undisturbed tribal populations of the world. Unfortunately, the remoteness and the lack of any kind of written record render studies of inbreeding effects in these populations almost impossible.

From the nationwide survey data of Imaizumi et al. 0009). g. in Spain the inbreeding coefficient (F) remained constant during the period from 1900 to 1959 and has decreased consistently over the last two decades (Calderon, 1989). The decline of the consanguinity rate is usually attributed to higher mobility of the population and therefore a wider choice of possible spouse. This paper investigates the effects of marital distance (between birthplaces), religion, socioeconomic factors, marriage form, and opportunity of meeting on the rate of consanguineous marriages in Japan, and also reports the stated reasons for consanguineous marriages: it summarises results reported elsewhere (Imaizumi, 1986a,b,c, 1987,1988).
