I never thought about this before. the answer is probably "not at all", but I have no doubt that our breeding choices affect certain traits of the tarantulas being passed around in this hobby. And I'm not talking about what happened with species like the B. albopilosum, I just mean changes in the same species as opposed to their wild counterparts, like if we breed tarantulas that are smaller than usual, then the future generations are also gonna be small. The colors, attitude, and size of tarantulas could be affected by this later on. Let me know your thoughts.
