Phenotype

Term Definition
Phenotype
The observable characteristics of an individual. The phenotype is influenced by both the individual's environment and their genotype. In coat color, animals with a genotype of EE will have a black coat phenotype. Environmental influences may alter the phenotype (nutrition, freeze branding, bleaching, etc.) but the genotype will remain the same.
