phe·no·type

(fē′nə-tīp′)
The physical appearance of an organism as distinguished from its genetic makeup. The phenotype of an organism depends on which genes are dominant and on the interaction between genes and environment. Compare genotype.

phenotype

The physical appearance of organism that results from the interaction between a genotype and the environment.

Heritability was estimated as the ratio of the additive genetic variance to total phenotypic variance; and repeatability, as the ratio of the sum of the additive genetic variance and permanent environmental variance to phenotypic variance [10].
The common environmental parameter estimated (c2) represented the proportion of phenotypic variance (I2P) attributable to animal's permanent environmental effects and were calculated as follows:
For an efficient selection it is need to estimate the components of genetic and phenotypic variance, because through the relationship between the variances, it is possible to estimate the accuracy and heritability.
Estimated the direct additive and maternal heritabilities and ratio of permanent environmental variance on phenotypic variance are presented in Table 2.
There was a greater participation of genotypic variance among progenies in the individual phenotypic variance for fruit weight (FW) and pulp yield (PY) (Table 1) as well as soluble solids (SSC) and ascorbic acid (AAC) contents (Table 2), suggesting it is possible to select progenies with high yield and that produce better-quality fruit.
0% of the total phenotypic variance detected by resistance score (Kim et al.
For MY, the fractions of phenotypic variance due to permanent environmental effects were higher than the heritability estimates across lactation.
The present work aimed at estimating the components of the phenotypic variance in VCU tests of black bean conducted in Santa Catarina State during seven years in ten locations, and evaluating the genetic potential and progress of the genotypes evaluated for the grain yield and plant cycle characters, by the REML/BLUP methodology.
The mean square of error and phenotypic variance were estimated according to Johnson et al.
Principal components analysis of phenotypic data showed that the first three PCs explained 43% of the total phenotypic variance (19%, 13% and 11%, respectively).
