Title Multilevel Selection 4: Modeling the Relationship of Indirect Genetic Effects and Group Size

Abstract Indirect genetic effects (IGE) occur when individual trait values depend on genes in others. With IGEs, heritable variance and response to selection depend on the relationship of IGEs and group size. Here I propose a model for this relationship, which can be implemented in standard restricted maximum likelihood software.
