For age-specific mortality, the inbreeding load is expressed as an age-independent component (

*L*_{α}) and an age-dependent component (*L*_{β}) (see materials and methods). All estimates were obtained by weighted least-squares regression. The standard errors associated with each estimate are given in parentheses. *Significant values,*P*< 0.01.
