MULTIFACTORIAL INHERITANCE

is the inheritance of a trait which is not determined by a single gene in the body but instead determined by a range of factors such as genetics combined with environmental factors and even nutritional status.

MULTIFACTORIAL INHERITANCE: "The concept of multifactorial inheritance implies that some characteristics in humans are a result of a variety of factors, not just a single gene."
