Simulated data supporting inbreeding rate estimates from incomplete pedigrees

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

This data release includes: (1) The data from simulations used to illustrate the behavior of inbreeding rate estimators. Estimating inbreeding rates is particularly difficult for natural populations because parentage information for many individuals may be incomplete. Our analyses illustrate the behavior of a newly-described inbreeding rate estimator that outperforms previously described approaches in the scientific literature. (2) All of the source code from the "analytical expressions", "computer simulations", and "empricial data set" sections of the associated journal article.
