THE MEASUREMENT OF SELECTION ON CORRELATED CHARACTERS
  • R. Lande, S. J. Arnold
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 November 1983
TLDR
Measures of directional and stabilizing selection on each of a set of phenotypically correlated characters are derived, retrospective, based on observed changes in the multivariate distribution of characters within a generation, not on the evolutionary response to selection. Expand
QUANTITATIVE GENETIC ANALYSIS OF MULTIVARIATE EVOLUTION, APPLIED TO BRAIN:BODY SIZE ALLOMETRY
  • R. Lande
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 March 1979
TLDR
Methods of multivariate analysis, functional analysis and optimality criteria popular among evolutionists, do not account for dynamical constraints imposed by the pattern of genetic variation within populations. Expand
SEXUAL DIMORPHISM, SEXUAL SELECTION, AND ADAPTATION IN POLYGENIC CHARACTERS
  • R. Lande
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 March 1980
TLDR
Sexual dimorphism may result from natural and/or sexual selection, and systems of mating are often thought to evolve in response to ecological pressures, although mating preferences may be self-reinforcing. Expand
Models of speciation by sexual selection on polygenic traits.
  • R. Lande
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences…
  • 1 June 1981
TLDR
The models elucidate genetic mechanisms that can initiate or contribute to rapid speciation by sexual isolation and divergence of secondary sexual characters in polygamous species. Expand
THE EVOLUTION OF SELF‐FERTILIZATION AND INBREEDING DEPRESSION IN PLANTS. I. GENETIC MODELS
  • R. Lande, D. Schemske
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 January 1985
TLDR
Genetic models are constructed which allow inbreeding depression to change with the mean selfing rate in a population by incorporating both mutation to recessive and partially dominant lethal and sublethal alleles at many loci and mutation in quantitative characters under stabilizing selection. Expand
NATURAL SELECTION AND RANDOM GENETIC DRIFT IN PHENOTYPIC EVOLUTION
  • R. Lande
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 June 1976
TLDR
The concept of adaptive zones is clarified by the construction of an adaptive topography for the average phenotype in a population, which shows that with constant fitnesses theaverage phenotype evolves toward the nearest adaptive zone in the phenotype space, but if fitnesses are frequency-dependent the average phenotypes may evolve away from an adaptive zone. Expand
Statistics and partitioning of species diversity, and similarity among multiple communities
TLDR
This work partitioned Simpson diversity into positive, additive components within and among communities, corresponding to α- and β-diversity, so that the total diversity in a pooled set of communities exceeds the average diversity within communities. Expand
Risks of Population Extinction from Demographic and Environmental Stochasticity and Random Catastrophes
  • R. Lande
  • Medicine, Biology
  • The American Naturalist
  • 1 December 1993
TLDR
The relative risks of extinction from environmental stochasticity and random catastrophes depend on the mean and environmental variance of population growth rate, and the magnitude and frequency of catastropheses. Expand
Efficiency of marker-assisted selection in the improvement of quantitative traits.
TLDR
This work derives selection indices that maximize the rate of improvement in quantitative characters under different schemes of MAS combining information on molecular genetic polymorphisms (marker loci) with data on phenotypic variation among individuals (and their relatives). Expand
