## Figure 1.
Change of the proportion of the epigenetic variance over the total genetic variance
(R_{e}^{2}) as a function of the occurrence rate of methylation in a natural population. The total and epigenetic genetic variances are calculated by assuming population
genetic parameters (p, q, u, D_{1e}, D_{2e}, D_{12}) ≡ (0.4, 0.6, u, 0.05, 0.05, D_{12}) (allowing u and D_{12} to change) and quantitative genetic parameters (a_{1}, a_{e}, d_{1e}, d_{2e}, d_{12}) ≡ (0.4, 0.05, 0.05, 0.05, 0.05).
