1. Restricted maximum likelihood using the `Animal Model' (REML) and least squares (LS) analyses of a quantitative genetic study of life-history traits are compared. The REML method is considered generally superior although the advantages are not great if the data analysed come from nearly balanced one-generation designs. 2. Although in the analysis of several traits multivariate analysis is desirable it did not prove practicable because of its computational demands.
