Abstract

Litter size, brain size, and body size were examined in inbred and hybrid house mice of three different ages in order to test whether litter size exhibits a positive genetic, but negative environmental association with both brain and body size. As estimated from among-line covariation, litter size showed a positive, but non-significant genetical association… (More)
