Change of the proportion of the epigenetic variance over the total genetic variance (Re2) 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, D1e, D2e, D12) ≡ (0.4, 0.6, u, 0.05, 0.05, D12) (allowing u and D12 to change) and quantitative genetic parameters (a1, ae, d1e, d2e, d12) ≡ (0.4, 0.05, 0.05, 0.05, 0.05).
