Data from: Sex chromosome linked genetic variance and the evolution of sexual dimorphism of quantitative traits

Arild Husby, Holger Schielzeth, Wolfgang Forstmeier, Lars Gustafsson & Anna Qvarnström
Theory predicts that sex chromsome linkage should reduce intersexual genetic correlations thereby allowing the evolution of sexual dimorphism. Empirical evidence for sex linkage has come largely from crosses and few studies have examined how sexual dimorphism and sex linkage are related within outbred populations. Here we use data on an array of different traits measured on over 10,000 individuals from two pedigreed populations of birds (collared flycatcher and zebra finch) to estimate the amount of...
