Rates of evolutionary change predicted by (from left to right) the breeder’s equation in its multivariate form (MBE), the multivariate breeder’s equation while constraining the genetic correlations to zero (MBEρ = 0), and the univariate breeder’s equation (UBE), followed by the phenotypic trend (PT), the trend in predicted breeding values (TPBV), and the genetic change estimated by the Price equation (GCPE). All bars represent posterior modes, with vertical lines indicating 95%CI. Raw data underlying this figure can be found in S1 Data.
