Cross-Classified Designs -- 21. Correlations Between Characters -- 22. Genotype x Environment Interaction -- 23. Maternal Effects -- 24. Sex Linkage and Sexual Dimorphism -- 25. Threshold Characters -- 26. Estimation of Breeding Values -- 27. Variance-Component Estimation with Complex Pedigrees -- App. A1. Expectations, Variances, and Covariances of Compound Variables -- App. A2. Path Analysis -- App. A3. Further Topics in Matrix Algebra and Linear Models -- App. A4. Maximum Likelihood Estimation and Likelihood-Ratio Tests -- App. A5. Computing the Power of Statistical Tests -- Literature Cited -- Author Index -- Organism and Trait Index -- Subject Index. This first of a two-volume set on the theoretical and empirical applications of quantitative genetics focuses on the basic biology and methods of analysis of quantitative characters. The authors endeavor to develop central theoretical concepts from first principles. They also outline basic principles of complex pedigree analysis. The extensive appendices include reviews of the statistical tools used in the book. Designed for use as a textbook or a basic reference.
