Oops!  Sorry 'bout the jargon.  
w.r.t. = with respect to

Traits are not unconditionally dominant or recessive, but relatively so.  In
other words, a trait is dominant or recessive with respect to some other trait.
For example, a violet-on-white plicata pattern is recessive w.r.t. the violet
self pattern but dominant w.r.t. the type of white that results from a total
lack of anthocyanin.
