  • P values are for significance of departure of the genetic correlation from unity from the T × L interaction term of the appropriate analysis of variance. NS, not significant; P > 0.05; *, 0.01 < P < 0.05; **, 0.001 < P < 0.01; ***,P < 0.001. See legend to Table 2 for definitions of abbreviations.
