80) These patterns indicate a populist market eugenic at work, as purchasers make selections based on information about nonheritable as well as heritable traits.
Alternatively, if the positive correlation between the traits and fitness is exclusively due to a nonheritable, environmental component, then even a heritable trait will not evolve (e.
1988) tried to solve this problem by suggesting that a nonheritable trait (female nutritional state) that is correlated with breeding time, affects both the focal trait (timing of breeding) and fitness (female fecundity) independently.
Heritable and nonheritable relationships and variability of oil content and agronomic characters in the [F.
Alternatively, it is possible that substantial heritable variation for a trait could persist at evolutionary equilibrium if a nonheritable trait such as nutritional state affects the trait and fitness through different pathways (see Price et al.
Speciation rates therefore had a heritable component (x) and a nonheritable component ([[Epsilon].
That continuous- and intermittent-noise models behave differently is potentially very important, not least because previous discussions of such nonheritable variation (e.

Slatkin and Lande (1976) considered a model based on quantitative genetics for evolution of the level nonheritable phenotypic variance under fluctuating selection.
In one view, nonheritable variation (such as the health or nutritional state of the parent) may affect both the number of young produced as well as the total number recruited (Price et al.
