Abstract

Aggression confers several fitness benefits, including increased breeding opportunities and resource acquisition. Determining the relative contributions of genetic and environmental components to shaping aggression is essential for advancing our understanding of how selection affects the distribution of aggressive phenotypes in a population. In a From the Cover article in this issue of Molecular Ecology, vonHoldt et al. (2020) used RAD-seq methods to obtain genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data to estimate heritability of interpack aggression of 141 North American grey wolves (Canis lupus) surveyed from 1995-2018.
