Six replicate lines of Drosophila melanogaster, which had been selected for increased abdominal bristle number for more than 85 generations, were assayed by hierarchical analysis of variance and offspring on parent regression immediately after selection ceased, and by single-generation realised heritability after more than 25 generations of subsequent relaxed selection. Half-sib estimates of heritability in 5 lines were as high as in the base population and much higher than observed genetic… CONTINUE READING
