Genetic diversity, inbreeding and cancer – Supplementary material

Table S1. Examples showing the effect of loss of genetic diversity and inbreeding on organismal fitness*. N: number on samples analysed, A: average number of alleles, HE: Expected heterozygosity. Table S2. Examples of cancer cases in humans, domestic animals and wildlife, including their suggested causes (categorised as reduced genetic diversity ●, pollution ●, mitigated by parasite infection ●, and transmissible and thus mitigated by interactions with infected conspecifics or related species ●). N: number on samples analysed, A: average number of alleles, HE: Expected heterozygosity.
