  • * P < 0.05

  • ** P < 0.01

  • *** P < 0.001, based on tabulated values.

  • a Estimates at 73 cM, the most likely position of a QTL from the analysis across families.

  • b Absolute values of the allele substitution effect in millimeters. The sign of the estimated effect is conditional on the arbitrary assignment of the first parental haplotype and therefore omitted.
