Consequences of stabilising selection for polygenic variation

Abstract

A number of earlier authors have investigated the consequences for fitness of gene differences affecting the expression of a primary character where stabilising selection is acting in favour of an optimal expression. Assuming that the mean expression must be at or close to the optimum, deviations from the mean have been taken as measures of the deviation… (More)
