Influence of Nesting Structures on the Genetic Propagation of Game Farm Mallard Genetics into Wild Populations
The captive breeding and the genetic dynamics of wild populations has long intrigued ecologists. This research delves into the effects of mallard hen house nesting structures on the survivability and genetic propagation of feral game farm mallard genetics within wild populations. Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) are an ecologically significant waterfowl species, and understanding the impacts of these nesting structures is vital for conservation aimed at preserving population health.
