A disease wipes out the majority of Mountain Yellow-legged frogs in the Sierra Nevadas. Managers would like to know whether this population is highly inbred as a result. To help them address this question, you look at the genotype frequencies at a particular locus with the alleles A and B. You find the frequency of AA individuals is 0.72, and the frequency of BB individuals is 0.09. Using this information, calculate the inbreeding coefficient, F, for this frog population. 0.37 0.25 0.63 0.75
