The adaptive landscape as a conceptual bridge between micro- and macroevolution
An adaptive landscape concept outlined by G.G. Simpson constitutes the major conceptual bridge between the fields of micro- and macroevolutionary study. Despite some important theoretical extensionsExpand

Understanding The Evolution And Stability Of The G-Matrix
Abstract The G-matrix summarizes the inheritance of multiple, phenotypic traits. The stability and evolution of this matrix are important issues because they affect our ability to predict how theExpand

STABILITY OF THE G‐MATRIX IN A POPULATION EXPERIENCING PLEIOTROPIC MUTATION, STABILIZING SELECTION, AND GENETIC DRIFT
Abstract. Quantitative genetics theory provides a framework that predicts the effects of selection on a phenotype consisting of a suite of complex traits. However, the ability of existing theory toExpand

Genetic mating systems and reproductive natural histories of fishes: lessons for ecology and evolution.
Fish species have diverse breeding behaviors that make them valuable for testing theories on genetic mating systems and reproductive tactics. Here we review genetic appraisals of paternity andExpand

THE MUTATION MATRIX AND THE EVOLUTION OF EVOLVABILITY
Abstract Evolvability is a key characteristic of any evolving system, and the concept of evolvability serves as a unifying theme in a wide range of disciplines related to evolutionary theory. TheExpand

Microsatellite analysis of maternity and the mating system in the Gulf pipefish Syngnathus scovelli, a species with male pregnancy and sex‐role reversal
Highly variable microsatellite loci were employed to study the mating system of the sexually dimorphic Gulf pipefish Syngnathus scovelli. In this species, like others in the family Syngnathidae,Expand
