A genetic model is presented that is based on acquisition-allocation pleiotropy of loci coding for two traits competing for resources. If the acquisition of resources is limited (has a plateau), it is shown that such a model produces singificant curvilinearty in the genetic relationship between the traits. The model will be used to check different methods of estimating curvilinear genetic relationships
