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
Morphology, Performance and Fitness
TLDR
The problem of measuring selection on morphological traits is simplified by breaking the task into two parts: measurement of the effects of morphological variation on performance and measurement ofThe effects of performance on fitness. Expand
ON THE MEASUREMENT OF NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION: THEORY
  • S. J. Arnold, M. Wade
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 July 1984
TLDR
An approach to the empirical measurement of selection that is directly related to formal evolutionary theory is illustrated and a mode of data analysis that describes selection in useful, theoretical terms is presented so that field or experimental results will have a tangible relationship to equations for evolutionary change. Expand
HIERARCHICAL COMPARISON OF GENETIC VARIANCE‐COVARIANCE MATRICES. I. USING THE FLURY HIERARCHY
TLDR
Flury (1988) has provided an approach to matrix comparison in which a variety of hypotheses are tested, including the two extreme hypotheses prevalent in the evolutionary literature, which are adapted to the problem of comparing G‐matrices by using randomization testing to account for nonindependence induced by family structure. Expand
VISUALIZING MULTIVARIATE SELECTION
TLDR
It is concluded that selection may be more usefully classified into two general modes, directional and non linear selection, with stabilizing and disruptive selection as special cases of nonlinear selection. Expand
Animal Mating Systems: A Synthesis Based on Selection Theory
TLDR
It is argued that sexual selection gradients are the key to understanding how the intensity of sexual selection is affected by mate provisioning, parental investment, and sex ratio. Expand
ON THE MEASUREMENT OF NATURAL AND SEXUAL SELECTION: APPLICATIONS
  • S. J. Arnold, M. Wade
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic…
  • 1 July 1984
TLDR
This paper uses measures of selection developed by quantitative geneticists and some new results to analyze multiple episodes of selection in natural populations of amphibians, reptiles, and insects. Expand
The adaptive landscape as a conceptual bridge between micro- and macroevolution
TLDR
The status of theoretical work is reviewed and the importance of models for peak movement for evolution on stationary, unchanging landscapes is emphasized, with a focus on the evolution of the landscape itself. Expand
Constraints on Phenotypic Evolution
  • S. J. Arnold
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The American Naturalist
  • 1 November 1992
TLDR
A unifying framework that considers all four major varieties of constraint is emerging within the discipline of quantitative genetics, and this work attempts to sketch that emerging framework and summarize recent efforts toward unification. Expand
