    Abstract

    Population samples including mother-offspring combinations provide information on the selection components: zygotic selection, sexual selection, gametic seletion and fecundity selection, on the mating pattern, and on the deviation from linkage equilibrium among the loci studied. The theory for the analysis of a sample consisting of adult individuals including combinations of a mother and one randomly chosen offspring in the case of n polymorphic autosomal loci with ma alleles at the ath locus, a = 1, 2,…, n, is developed for an organism with discrete non-overlapping generations. In this general analysis complete determination of the genotypes is assumed. The modifications in the analysis for the case n = 2 and m1 = m2 = 2 when the two double heterozygotes cannot be separated are discussed, and the analysis is illustrated by data from a population of Zoarces viviparus (a marine teleost).
