We ask: Is genetic edition quite vital for the endurance of species? Has any species develop into extinct since it ran out of genetic version or due to inbreeding melancholy? Are demographic and environmental stochas ticity by way of way more very important for the destiny of a inhabitants or species than genetic stochasticity (genetic glide and inbreeding)? Is there extra to genetics than being a device for assessing reproductive devices and migration premiums? Does traditional knowledge on inbreeding and "magic numbers" or ideas of thumb on severe powerful inhabitants sizes (MVP estimators) mirror any worthy instructions in conservation biology? What messages or instructions from genetics will we reliably offer to people who paintings with conservation in perform? Is empirical paintings on various threatened habitats and taxa collecting inhabitants genetic info that we will be able to use to check those directions? those and different questions have been raised within the invitation to a symposium on conservation genetics held in may possibly 1993 in friendly atmosphere at an outdated manor condominium in southern Jutland, Denmark.
