Previous studies in this series have dealt with the consequences of truncation selection operating with respect to random groups within which geno-full-sib group structure. The objective is to compare the results of individual and group selection as these methods operate on populations of random versus typic interaction may exist. The present study deal with a non-random, full-sib groups. In almost all comparisons individual selection is found to be qualitatively and quantitatively superior when used in conjunction with full-sib groups. This is due to the fact that the change in gene frequency for full-sib groups is a function of both direct and associate effects, whereas with random groups it is a function of direct effects only. With regard to group selection the efficiency is invariably superior when selection operates on non-random, full-sib rather than random groups.
