The genetic architecture of maternal effects across ontogeny in the red deer

Gauzere, Julie; Pemberton, Josephine M; Morris, Sean; Morris, Alison; Kruuk, Loeske; Walling, Craig A.


Maternal effects, either environmental or genetic in origin, are an underappreciated source of phenotypic variance in natural populations. Maternal genetic effects have the potential to constrain or enhance the evolution of offspring traits depending on their magnitude and their genetic correlation with direct genetic effects. We estimated the maternal effect variance and its genetic component for 12 traits expressed over the life history in a pedigreed population of wild red deer (morphology,...[Show more]
