Negative relationships between allozyme heterozygosity and morphological variance have often been observed and interpreted as evidence for increased developmental stability in heterozygotes. However, inbreeding can also generate such relationships by decreasing heterozygosity at neutral loci and redistributing genetic variance at the same time. I here provide a quantitative genetic model of this process by analogy with heterozygosity-fitness relationships. Inbreeding generates negative… CONTINUE READING
