Assortative mating for a quantitative character.

Abstract

Phenotypic assortative mating is investigated for a character determined by additive loci without dominance and a stochastically independent environment. Conditional-expectation arguments are used to calculate the equilibrium values of the phenotypic variance and the correlation between sundry relatives. For the latter, it suffices to suppose that the… (More)
