Example text

Social interactions occur among birds within a group and affect phenotypic values of birds. The phenotypic value of a bird will be the sum of a direct effect due to the individual itself and the social effects of the n − 1 other birds kept in the same group. Both the direct effect and the social effect may be decomposed into a heritable component, A, and a non-heritable component, E. 1, AD,i is the direct breeding value (DBV) of individual i, and AS , j the social breeding value (SBV) of its group member j.

4 shows that a negative genetic covariance between DBVs and SBVs ( σ ADS ) reduces the total heritable variation. With negative σ ADS , individuals with positive breeding values for their own phenotype (DBV) have, on average, negative social effects on the phenotypes of their group members (SBV). Thus negative σ ADS may be interpreted as ‘heritable competition’. Heritable competition, therefore, reduces the total heritable variation and thus the potential of the trait to respond to 2 σTBV 36 P.

The TPVi represents the total phenotypic effect of a bird on the trait values of its group (including itself), of which an amount ( AD,i + ED,i ) is expressed in its own phenotype and an amount ( AS,i + ES,i ) in the phenotypes of each of its n − 1 group members. 4, the variance of total phenotypic values is given by 2 2 2 σTPV = (σ A + σ E2 D ) + 2(n − 1)(σ ADS + σ EDS ) + (n − 1)2 (σ A + σ E2 S ). 9 shows that the limiting accuracy when using information of a large number of sib groups is identical to that in the classical case.
