The quantitative genetic theory of parental effects

Abstract

There are many theoretical approaches for studying the evolution of parental care and parent–offspring interactions (Chapters 2, 7, 9, and 16; Mock and Parker 1997), but here I focus on theory developed in the field of quantitative genetics. The reasons for this are twofold; first, they allow tractable dynamic models for phenotypes determined by multiple… (More)
