  • Viability, egg-to-adult viability; H, gene diversity (expected heterozygosity) for microsatellite markers; na, average number of alleles per locus for microsatellite markers; h2, average realized heritability for sternopleural bristle number. *Significantly different from zero at a 5% level. Number of pairs used for correlations: n = 84 for correlations between H and na; n = 70 for correlations between viability and H and na; n = 56 for correlations between viability and h2; n = 42 for correlations between h2 or mating success and the other parameters.
