Examining the Extinction of the Barbary Lion and Its Implications for Felid Conservation

Figure 4

Estimates of captive generations since wild collection in North Africa for current Moroccan Royal lions.

Grey boxes indicate estimated lion generations based on suggestions by: (a) Packer et al. [38], and (b) Hemmer [20]. Black boxes are the five known generations in the European studbook [13] since the 1974 survey at Temara Zoo. Generational positions for two studbook maternal lines are illustrated for a female cub (white box) born to studbook female 270, and a young male (267) born to female 230, tracing to founder females 37 and 21 respectively.
