## Figure 3.
Change of the proportion of the epigenetic variance over the total genetic variance
(R_{e}^{2}) as a function of the additive genetic effect due to the substitution of the original
allele by the epiallele. 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, 0.2, 0, 0, 0) and quantitative genetic parameters (a_{1}, a_{e}, d_{1e}, d_{2e}, d_{12}) ≡ (a_{1}, a_{e}, 0.05, 0.05, 0.05) (allowing a_{1} and a_{e} to change).
