Coefficients of Inbreeding and Relationship
The American Naturalist 56 (645): pp. 330-338 (1922)

IN the breeding of domestic animals consanguineous matings are frequently made. Occasionally matings are made between very close relatives-sire and daughter, brother and sister, etc.-but as a. rule such close inbreed- ing is avoided and there is instead an attempt to concen- trate the blood of some noteworthy individual by what is known as line breeding. No regular system of mating such as might be followed with laboratory animals is practicable as a rule.
