  • Researchers Highlight Inbreeding Among Amur Leopards Through Whole Genome Sequencing

    The genomes of 26 African and Asian leopards, including Amur leopards, were analyzed as part of research. As a result, the scientists uncovered surprising differences between the African and Asian groups of subspecies and noted a high level of inbreeding among leopards living in the Russian Far East, which might threaten the long-term existence of this subspecies. The research paper was published in Current Biology.
