A studbook generally assumes that all wild founders in the pedigree are unrelated. However, that is not necessarily true. Gaps in the existing studbook data and mistakes in the recorded pedigree also mean that, for some species, calculations of relatedness and subsequent breeding recommendations may be subject to error. As a result, the use of molecular genetic methods to carry out DNA profiling of animals is becoming an increasingly important tool in the planning of breeding programmes. Within the Society, we are fortunate to have the WildGenes Laboratory, one of the world's pioneering applied conservation genetics teams, and they are currently carrying out work on validating certain studbooks using DNA analysis. Through such profiling, the additional information the team provides can Blue Air Force 1 Low either substantiate or correct existing pedigree data.
The question arises of whether DNA analysis will ever replace the traditional studbook approach. In the short term, probably not current methods limit our ability to reconstruct historic family relationships with complete Nike Air Force 1 White Red

rah Wakeman, a qualified independent beauty therapist, who became involved two years ago after supporting many clients and close friendsShe said: "Dealing with cancer can be a frightening experience. Some treatments may result in appearance related side effects that can be hard to cope with. Traditionally we have used the all important studbook: a computerised record for each animal species held in zoos. It lists their name, date of birth, transfers between zoos and details of breeding activity. Its purpose is to keep healthy, genetically diverse captive populations by breeding individuals which are as Shoes Air Force 1
to combine studbook based computer dating with genetic profiling, which is proving to be as complicated as it sounds!Genetic analysis has much more to offer conservation, though, and the same DNA profiling techniques are used by RZSS to inform wildlife managers regarding population structure, genetic variability, individual dispersal, census size and breeding behaviour. In Scotland, the WildGenes Laboratory has worked with beavers, wildcats and birds of prey to establish the genetic diversity and size of natural populations and to inform future management decisions.
confidence and we're largely restricted to assessing first or second order relatives. However, since the turn of the century, the genomic revolution has cascaded from human genetics, through agricultural research, into wildlife conservation and may soon provide the potential to address some of these limitations. But while the technology is on our doorstep, the resources are not and may arguably be better spent elsewhere. So, for now, the challenge faced by zoo population managers is how White Nike Air Force 1 Women
well suited as possible in terms of their relatedness and genetic importance. We also aim for natural behaviours and compatibility between mates. Studbook records are also used to identify issues such as declining birth rates, increasing mortality or potential disease.
