Extracts additive genetic, non-additive genetic, and maternal variance components
from a generalized linear mixed-effect model using the *glmer* function of the *lme4* package.
Model random effects are dam, sire, dam by sire, and any additional fixed and/or random effects.

`resamp` |
Data frame of bootstrap resampled data. |

`dam` |
Column name containing dam(female) parent identity information. |

`sire` |
Column name containing sire(male) parent identity information. |

`response` |
Column name containing the offspring (response) phenotype values. |

`fam_link` |
The family and link in family(link) format. Supported options are binomial(logit), binomial(probit), poisson(log), and poisson (sqrt). |

`start` |
Starting model number. |

`end` |
Ending model number. |

`remain` |
Remaining formula using |

`quasi` |
Incorporate overdispersion or quasi-error structure. |

Used for bootstrap resampled data set produced using *resampRepli* or *resampFamily*.
Laplace approximation parameter estimation is used, which is a true likelihood method (Bolker et al. 2009).
For the overdispersion option, an observation-level random effect is added to the model (Atkins et al. 2013).
Extracts the dam, sire, dam, and dam by sire variance components.
Extracts any additional fixed effect and random effect variance components. The fixed-effect variance
component is as a single group using the method described by Nakagawa and Schielzeth (2013).
The residual variance component for the *fam_links* are described by Nakagawa and Schielzeth (2010, 2013).
Calculates the total variance component. Calculates the additive genetic, non-additive genetic, and
maternal variance components (see Lynch and Walsh 1998, p. 603).

A data frame with columns containing the raw variance components for dam, sire, dam by sire, residual, total, additive genetic, non-additive genetic, and maternal. Also columns containing the raw variance components for remaining formula components. The number of rows in the data frame matches the number of iterations in the resampled data set and each row represents a model number.

The Laplace approximation is used because there were fewer disadvantages relative to penalized quasi-likelihood and Gauss-Hermite quadrature parameter estimation (Bolker et al. 2009). That is, penalized quasi-likelihood is not recommended for count responses with means less than 5 and binary responses with less than 5 successes per group. Gauss-Hermite quadrature is not recommended for more than two or three random effects because of the rapidly declining analytical speed with the increasing number of random effects.
