The genetic variances and covariances of traits must be known to predict how they may respond to selection and how covariances among them might affect their evolutionary trajectories. We used the animal model to estimate the genetic variances and covariances of basal metabolic rate (BMR) and maximal metabolic rate (MMR) in a genetically heterogeneous stock of laboratory mice. Narrow-sense heritability (h(2)) was approximately 0.38 +/- 0.08 for body mass, 0.26 +/- 0.08 for whole-animal BMR, 0.24… CONTINUE READING
