Estimates of phenotypic and additive genetic variance (σ2Pand σ2A respectively) and heritability (h2, with standard error) of hip score for 15 breeds. The top panel shows parameters for 10 breeds derived from univariate analyses, while the bottom panel shows parameters for 5 breeds derived from bivariate analyses of hip and elbow score. Breed abbreviations: Akita [AKT], Bearded Collie [BEARD], Bernese Mountain Dog [BMD], Border Collie [BORD], English Setter [ENG], Flat Coat Retriever [FCR], Gordon Setter [GDN], Golden Retriever [GR], German Shepherd Dog [GSD], Labrador Retriever [LAB], Newfoundland [NEWF], Rottweiler [ROTT], Rhodesian Ridgeback [RR], Siberian Husky [SHUSK] and Tibetan Terrier [TT].
