Standard errors are given in parentheses. Because variance components are necessarily positive, a one-sided test is appropriate; thus, an estimate of a variance component is significantly greater than zero (P < 0.05) if it exceeds its standard error by a factor of 1.645. * P < 0.05; ** P < 0.01; *** P < 0.005, based on likelihood ratio tests of H_{0}: V_{M} = 0.
