Predicted inbreeding accumulation (F; top panel) and genetic diversity (GD; bottom panel) after 50 years in two isolated captive breeding facilities for the Tasmanian devil. Both facilities originated from 40 founders of even sex ratios, and had a carrying capacity of 100. Solid and dashed red lines represent a group enclosure facility (mean (solid line) ± SD (dashed lines), respectively) and the black lines represent an intensive enclosure facility (mean (solid line) ± SD (dashed lines), respectively). See Additional file 1: Table S1 for detailed Vortex parameters and methods section for rationale
