  1. σ A int 2 is the additive genetic variance for the intercept of the reaction norm; σ A sl 2 is the additive genetic variance for the slope of the reaction norm or macro-environmental sensitivity and σ A v 2 is the additive genetic variance for micro-environmental sensitivity or environmental variance.
