Abstract

The results of estimation for divergence by genotype among the offspring of the silver-blue female minks (M. vison) heterozygous by the aleutian gene (ppAa genotype) to be mated with the males ppaa genotype are presented. The proportions of both silver-blue and sappfiiric cubs upon birth are shown to deviate from the expected ones.
