Difference between Inbreeding and Outbreeding

1. Inbreeding is mating of closely related individuals within the same breed for 4 – 6 generations. Outbreeding is breeding the unrelated ani-mats of the same or different breed not having common ancestor.

2. Inbreeding cannot be divided into further types. Outbreeding includes out-crossing, cross-breeding, and inter-specific hybridisation.

3. In Inbreeding, mating is between same species. In Outbreeding, mating can be between different species.
