correlated response

correlated response

a change in the PHENOTYPE resulting from SELECTION for a completely different character, e.g. selection for more bristles, which in some insects can also cause sterility.

correlated response

change in an unselected character resulting from genetic selection of another character.

The ratio of the indirect to direct selection response was high for TFW (105%) when the correlated response was estimated by selection for ELP.
The indicator traits BFT, EMA, and ELP appear to have a relatively strong correlated response to TFP, with ratios of indirect to direct selection responses that were 67%, 61%, and 85%, respectively.
Higher correlation of ELP with TFW than with RCP incurred larger correlated response in TFW (105%) than in RCP (83%) (Table 4).
Falconer (1989) and Bourdon (2000) proposed using the correlated response of target traits to the selection of indicator traits, in addition to equations of correlated response, to improve important traits that are too difficult or expensive to measure or have low genetic variability in nature.
For example, selection for decreased BFT resulted in favorable and relatively large correlated responses in RCP, TFW, and TFP, selection for increased EMA led to relatively large correlated response in RCW, RCP, and TFP, and selection for increased ELP led to relatively large correlated responses in RCP, TFW, and TFP.
This study showed that the selection of specific carcass traits led to a strong correlated response of traits related to lean productivity.
Correlated response of carcass traits to selection for weaning weight, yearling weight and muscling score in cattle.
Other studies also found that correlated responses to indirect selection were smaller than to direct selection responses in many cases (Marshall, 1994; Oliver et al, 2001; Toral et al.
The trial, which correlated response to a Kaletra-containing regimen with baseline tests of protease-inhibitor resistance, provided valuable information about the drug in treatment-experienced patients.
The new trend is a correlated response - all segments down at the same time.
Combining multiple security services, the ipEnforcer delivers a unified and correlated response to attacks.
Unfortunately, selectively breeding to improve one characteristic can lead to undesirable correlated responses, such as reproductive inefficiencies.
