Distribution of two families descended from highly successful bears.

Detailed Description

Figure 3. Distribution of two families descended from two highly successful bears. On the left, a male bear sampled in 2010 was found to have 61 descendants and on the right, an inferred male bear was found to have 101 descendants in the sample. These two examples show how the genetic diversity in an area can be due to few individuals having very high reproductive success. Adapted from Mikle and others, 2016.
