Breeding programs should incorporate mate choice

elected males to a female or by using mate-preference tests such as presenting odor sample from selected males, and
-- free mate choice for large populations of non-monogamous species.

That said, Wedekind cautions that there are cases when free mate choice should not be allowed, such as for small populations of polygamous species.

Managers should evaluate the benefits and risks of mate choice on a case by case basis. "Any supportive breeding program, and even management of small and endangered animal populations, may benefit from incorporating knowledge about the natural breeding system, mate choice, and variance in heritable viability," says Wedekind.
