Nonadditive genetic effects in animal behavior

The American Naturalist

L M MeffertJennifer L Regan

Abstract

Heritabilities, commonly used to predict evolutionary potential, are notoriously low for behaviors. Apart from strong contributions of environmental variance in reducing heritabilities, the additive genetic components can be very low, especially when they are camouflaged by nonadditive ...read more
