comment Maintaining purebred pedigrees and how to lessen chance of getting disease?
Interesting question. I assume that "natural"/"ancient" dog breeds like huskies have fewer problems with inbreeding, but still maintain their traits; but I don't know that that's true, or why it would be the case.

comment Is there a hypothesis that attempts to explain patterns of species richness along all three energy-related environmental gradients?
