Estimates of genetic correlation between two traits / one trait in two selection environments

For estimating selection efficiency, an estimate of the genetic correlation has to be given. This value can be estimated using different equations and/or models: Based on the phenotypic correlation between two traits or the same trait estimated in different environments: (Falconer and Mackay, 1996): where is the phenotypic correlation between trait 1 and 2 and [...]
