Several measurements of genetic variability were investigated through simulation in finite populations undergoing selection based on animal model BLUP evaluations. Modifying these indices by putting less emphasis on pedigree information helped to preserve genetic variability. Considering only inbreeding was shown not to give a comprehensive view of the ability of a selected population to deal with changing selection objectives
