Table 4 Coefficient estimates from sire-offspring and dam-offspring regressions and cross correlation (reciprocal phenotypic regressions) of the proportion of orange and yellow components of throat colouration. Morph category was determined via segmentation analysis of digital photographs

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