Table 4 Phenotypic (above) and genetic (below) correlations among survival traits

From: Can metamorphosis survival during larval development in spiny lobster Sagmariasus verreauxi be improved through quantitative genetic inheritance?

  1. S1 = Early-phyllosoma stages (instars 1–6) survival, S2 = mid-phyllosoma stages (instars; 7–12), S3 = late-phyllosoma stages (instars 13–17), S4 = Metamorphosis survival and S5 = Puerulus stage
  2. n.e. = not estimable due to non-convergence of the log likelihood
