  1. Inbreeding effect on morbidity. IV: Further data in Brazilian populations.

    Article - En anglais

    The analysis of the data on 5677 children of 1063 couples from a fourth sample of consanguineous and nonconsanguineous marriage among whites and nonwhites living in the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil led to the following estimates:

    • B (number of abnormal equivalents per gamete) around 0.5;

    • A (morbidity in the non-inbred subsamples) 2-3 percent;

    • B/A 13, 15, and 27.

    (this suggests that the morbidity disclosed by inbreeding may predominantly represent a mutational load).
