Table 3 Results of animal models estimating heritability for the proportion of orange and yellow throat colouration (design size, N = 102; see methods for details)

From: The genetic basis of discrete and quantitative colour variation in the polymorphic lizard, Ctenophorus decresii

Response variable Animal variance Residual variance Phenotypic variance Heritability h2 ± SE 95 % confidence limits
Proportion orange 10.80 2.11 12.91 0.84 ± 0.14 0.55 –1.12
Proportion yellow 8.20 4.05 12.25 0.67 ± 0.19 0.30 –1.04
