There are, however, some genetic variances that may help to explain predisposition to dysfunction.
Concerning lato sensu, the heritability can be defined as the ratio between the genotypic variance and phenotypic variance, while, the stricto sensu one is defined as the ratio between additive genetic variance and phenotypic variance.
However, other population parameters that were measured indicate that the sampled pool of genetic variance was continually changing.
It is known that small populations give imprecise estimates of additive genetic variance and heritability, and the high standard errors on variances and heritabilities in this study illustrate this point.

Af] is the additive genetic variance among families or inbred lines, [[sigma].
We ate currently screening variation at several allozyme loci, which will allow for comparison of many important population parameters such as percentage of polymorphic loci, average number of alleles per locus, average heterozygosiry, and the partitioning of genetic variance within and among populations.
Genetic variance in populations is preserved through the balance of competing forces.
