INTRODUCTION
pg xvi, ln 4: "van der Beck" should be "van der Beek"
(Peter Visscher, Edinburgh, 17 April 1998)
CHAPTER 2
pg 23, 1 ln above Eq 2.5 (typo) delete "(Example 2, Appendix 1),"
(Eric Anderson, University of Washington, 4 Jan 1999)
CHAPTER 3
pg 36, line 2: change "p(x) = integral p(y | x) dy" to "p(x) = integral p(y, x) dy"
(Steve Iturria, Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research in San Antonio, 8 June 1998)
pg 45, ln 8 of Example 2: Change "interal" to "interval"
(Eric Anderson, University of Washington, 27 October 1998)
page 45: two lines from the bottom.
"As noted at the end of last chapter" should read
"As noted at the end of the last chapter"
(Eric Anderson, University of Washington, 27 October 1998)
CHAPTER 5
pg 89, line 3: change "j = U_M" to "l = U_M"
(John Sater, 13 May 1998)
pg 89, 1st equation after header "Dominance Effects". Change
P(ijkl | i,j = B_{M}) to P(ijkl | i,j = B_{MM}) [ ie the subscript M should be MM]
(BW 19 Feb 1998)
CHAPTER 7
pg 138, line -9 (2nd line of last paragraph). Change "female" to "male", so it now reads
"Assuming the MALE is the heterogametic sex"
(Peter Visscher, Edinburgh, 30 March 1998)
pg 175, line 2: Change "different" to "differ"
(Claus Ekstroem, University of Copenhagen, 4 Jan. 1999)
CHAPTER 9
pg 238, 2nd line after equation in Example 5. Change "n=10" to "n=5.4"
(Sally Otto, University BC, 30 Nov 1998)
CHAPTER 11
There is a numbering error in that there is no Table 11.3, so that the table numbering skips from Table 11.2 (page 309) to Table 11.4 (page 315). The references in the text are internally consistent, so the casual reader can ignore this error. However, to be formally correct, all references to Table 11.4 should be change to 11.3 and all references to 11.5 changed to Table 11.4
(John Sater, Washington DC, 4 June 1998)
CHAPTER 14
pg 405, 4th line from bottom. Change "cogenic" to "congenic"
(Cynthia Ernst, NC State University, 14 April 1998)

(John Sater, Washington DC, 4 June 1998)
CHAPTER 15
There is a numbering error in that there is no Table 15.2, so that the table numbering skips from Table 15.1 (page 440) to Table 15.3 (page 479).
(John Sater, Washington DC, 15 June 1998)
CHAPTER 16
pg. 496, Equation 16.7. The second half of the equation should read
Pr(Q_j | M_1) = Pr(Q_i | M_2) = c (Q_j and Q_i were mistakenly reversed)
(John Sater, Washington DC, 27 July 1998)
pg. 498, 3 lines below 16.12: : "van der Beck" should be "van der Beek"
(Peter Visscher, Edinburgh, 17 April 1998)
pg. 499, Equation 16.16. n should be replaced with (n/2).
(Jim Holland and Rohan Fernando, Iowa State University, 2 Dec 1998)
pg. 500, Equation 16.17. [2 corrections] n should be replaced with (n/2) on the left-hand side, and sigma^2_A/4 should be replaced by sigma^2_A/2.
(Jim Holland and Rohan Fernando, Iowa State University, 2 Dec 1998)
pg. 500, last line. The phrase "Combining this" is out of place and should be moved to the
top of the page, so that it now reads "Combining this with Equations 16.10b..."
(1st reported by Stefano Leonardi, Oregon State University 5 March 1998;
correct placement noted by John James, University of New South Wales, 17 March 1998)
pg. 501, line6 of Figure 16.2: "van der Beck" should be "van der Beek"
(Peter Visscher, Edinburgh, 17 April 1998)
pg. 501, line 6: "van der Beck" should be "van der Beek"
(Peter Visscher, Edinburgh, 17 April 1998)
pg. 502, line 9: "van der Beck" should be "van der Beek"
(Peter Visscher, Edinburgh, 17 April 1998)
pg. 505, line 10: "van der Beck" should be "van der Beek"
(Peter Visscher, Edinburgh, 17 April 1998)
pg. 521 In both Equation 16.46a and 16.46b, the (1-2c_{ij}) term should be squared,
giving (1-2c_{ij})^2
(Bruce Weir, NC State University, 1 April 1998)
CHAPTER 18
pg. 561, Equation 18.19. Correction and clarification. Equation 18.19 should read
Var(MS) = 2 MS^2/(df + 2). In other words, an ESTIMATE of the true variance
of MS [ \sigma^2(MS) ] is approximately given by a function of square of the
observed MS.
(Peter Visscher, Edinburgh, 9 April 1998)
CHAPTER 20
pg. 623. Vertical caption on Figure 20.4 should read "sigma_{P_2,r}(i)" rather than "sigma_{P_2}r(i)". Likewise, "sigma^2_{r(i)}" should instead read "sigma^2_r(i)"
(John Sater, Washington DC, 27 July 1998)
CHAPTER 21
pg. 641, 4 lines from bottom. "see Chapter 14" should read "see Chapter 15"
(BW 2 February 1998)
CHAPTER 22
pg. 677, Table 22.2. The expected MS for genotype (G) has an extra '+' symbol.
(John Sater, Washington DC, 27 July 1998)
CHAPTER 23
pg. 700, 7 lines below Eq. 23.9e. Drop the lead parenthesis before "However"
(John Sater, Washington DC, 27 July 1998)
pg. 709, right below Figure 23.5, the phrase "G is the matrix ...and T denotes a transpose" is repeated
(John Sater, Washington DC, 27 July 1998)
CHAPTER 24
pg. 721, Table 24.1. The first line in the Male-Male relationships section gives for Father-son a Phi_xy of 1/4, but this should be 0.
(Jack Windig, Stockholm University ,15 Jan 1999)
CHAPTER 25
pg. 738, 5th line from bottom: Change "from Equation 25.1b" to "from Equation 25.1c"
(Jeff Hard, Northwest Fisheries Science Center, 30 March 1998)
CHAPTER 27
pg. 796, Example 4.
(i) The two sigma's [the variance components sigma^2_A(k) and sigma^2_E(k)] should have their positions swapped in the vector theta, so that the first (top) element should be sigma^2_E(k) and the second (bottom) element becomes sigma^2_A(k).
(ii) The lower left element in the Hessian matrix H should be tr(PPA) - 2yPPAPy, not tr(PAP) - 2yPAPPy as listed
(Claus Ekstroem, University of Copenhagen, 14 Jan. 1999)
APPENDIX 1
pg 814-5. Equation A1.10b n should be (n-1). This results in three other errors.
(1) In the second (unnumbered) equation on pg 815, n --> (n-1)
(2) In the next line, n [Var(x)]^2/(n+2) --> (n-1) [Var(x)]^2/(n+1)
(3) In Equation A1.10c, n+2 --> n+1
(Peter Visscher, Edinburgh, 9 July 1998)
pg 818, 1st line of Eq. A1.19b. The minus sign on the (mu_n/mu_v^2) term should be deleted. The final result in A1.19b is, however, correct.
(Esther Davies, Edinburgh, 15 June 1998)
APPENDIX 2
pg 827, equation in middle of page. Change "G_o = H_p + H_m" to "G_o = H_f + H_m".
(Leif Peterson, Baylor, 9 November 1998)
APPENDIX 4
pg. 861, line 2: "Equation A3.11c" should read "Equation A3.11b"
(BW 29 December 1997)
APPENDIX 5
pg. 885, Example 4 ln 2: change "n=35" to "n=30", ln 4 : change "lambda = 20*36 " to "lambda = 20*30".
(Jon Slate ICAPB, Edinburgh, 1 June 1998)
pg. 887, 3 lines below Eq A5.33a. "sigma_z =" should read "sigma^2_z"
(Tim Roughsedge, University of Edinburgh 8 April 1998)
pg. 888, 4rd line of Example 7 should read "n=25" instead of "N=25"
(John Sater, Washington DC, 27 July 1998)
