Evolutionary responses to selection can be complicated when there is substantial nonadditivity, which limits our ability to extrapolate from simple models of selection to population differentiation and speciation. Studies of Drosophila melanogaster indicate that lifespan and the rate of senescence are influenced by many genes that have environment‐ and sex‐specific effects. These studies also demonstrate that interactions among alleles (dominance) and loci (epistasis) are common, with the… Expand
