%X An expression is derived which accounts for the effect of linkage on the mean value of diploid inbreds. The original population is taken to be in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. It is shown that linkage will accelerate inbreeding depression. The precise nature of the acceleration is worked out for some special cases.
