  • Estimates of the between- (Vb) and the additive within- (Vw) line components of variance after one or three consecutive bottlenecks (N = 2) and the corresponding FST and QST values for morphological traits and viability in Drosophila melanogaster and Tribolium castaneum.

  • a Whitlock and Fowler (1999) and unpublished data.

  • b López-Fanjul et al. (1989).

  • c López-Fanjul and Villaverde (1989).

  • d García et al. (1994).

  • e Fernández et al. (1995).

  • f All estimates were corrected for common environmental effects by subtracting the corresponding Vb at generation 0.

  • g Estimates from mother-daughter regression analysis (reference in a) or realized heritability after one generation of artificial selection (references in b-e).
