Mice from the brave and the fearful lines were interbred over 30 generations, and as controls the two lines were also crossbred. 4. JJ: Interesting! Though the lines zig-zag around a bit, I can imagine roughly straight lines though the three sets of points, so I guess that allows for predictability of what you’ll see in each successive generation.
But recall that in the derivation of the equations for the twin model, c 2 was defined as all those things that make the twins alike (correlated). Similarly, e 2 is defined as all those things that make the twins different. The notions can escape from empirical circularity by being further specified and qualified, but this is where the somewhat nebulous character of the concepts becomes apparent. Ultimately, I will suggest, the distinction between shared and nonshared becomes highly context specific, almost a term of art, to be determined in each specific study.
The average height in this entire collection of plants is about 160 cm (~5 feet). Suppose our plant breeder anticipates orders for a large number of big rubber trees for some new malls. If he can interbreed just very tall parents (which he selects from those that have heights about 260 cm) and if the heritability of height in this population is 50%, then the average height of their offspring will be about 210 cm (about 6′10″), well above the average of the original population. 18 This easy prediction using the narrow heritability concept, however, assumes that there is no nongenetic cause of resemblance between parent and offspring that would affect height, like nutritional or climate differences.
