Variance Components of a Quantitative Trait:
VP = VG + VE + VGE
where: VP = phenotypic variation of the segregating population
VG = genetic variation
VE = environmental variation
VGE = variation associated with the genetic and environmental factor interactions
Both genetic and environmental factors contribute to variation in phenotypes of individuals within a population. Match the appropriate definition with each of the terms that relate to phenotypic variance.
