Estimated breeding values (EBV) for post-weaning weight gain (PWG) of Nellore cattle according to the environmental gradient, for different reaction norm models. RNM_homo: linear homoscedastic; RNM_hete: linear heteroscedastic; RNM_quad: quadratic heteroscedastic; RNM_l-l: spline linear–linear heteroscedastic; RNM_q-q: spline quadratic–quadratic heteroscedastic. ae Reaction norms of genotyped sires with at least 50 progeny (n = 627). f Reaction norms of three selected sires (differentiated by color) for models RNM_hete (solid line), RNM_quad (dotted curve) and RNM_l-l (dashed curve)
