Summary Heritability (h2) represents the potential for short-term response of a quantitative trait to selection. Unfortunately, estimating h2 through traditional crossing experiments is not practical for many species, and even for those in which mating can be manipulated, it may not be possible to assay them in ecologically relevant environments. We evaluated an approach, GCTA, that uses relatedness estimated from genomic data to estimate the proportion of phenotypic variance due to… CONTINUE READING
