  • Values are estimates (SE) of the following statistics: M, mean body volume; Ve, environmental variance; VL, among-line variance; ΔM, rate of decline in mean body volume per generation; Vm, mutational variance; CVm, coefficient of mutational variation; h2m, mutational heritability; UBM and aBM, haploid genomic mutation rate per generation and average homozygous mutational effect, under an equal effects model; r, phenotypic correlation between body size and fertility (MA line means).
