Heritability of Heat Tolerance in the Zebra Mussel, Dreissena polymorpha, in the Great Lakes

Our objective is to use a full-sib half-sib experiment to determine the genetic component of variation in heat tolerance and the heritability of heat tolerance in the zebra mussel. We will meet the objective above by testing the following hypothesis. Heat tolerance has a genetic component and a portion of the phenotypic variability is due to additive genetic variance and is therefore, heritable.
