Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Bijma et al. (2007a,b) presented a quantitative genetic theory of multilevel selection and showed how to estimate the relevant parameters using standard restricted maximum-likelihood (REML) methodology. Extending their results we develop a wider class of models that provide a more realistic framework for capturing the effects of interacting individuals. These models also make use of standard REML techniques and include the original model as a special case.
