Genetic rescue can be a successful way to restore species genetic diversity, but it can also lead to outbreeding depression (decreases in hybrid fitness) if attempted in incompatible populations. Thus, population genetic profiles and demographic history are needed to evaluate the feasibility of translocation. We used population genetic analyses and Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) to assess ...
