Adaptive changes in populations encountering a new environment are often constrained by deleterious pleiotropic interactions with ancestral physiological functions. Evolutionary responses of populations can thus be limited by natural selection under fluctuating environmental conditions, if the adaptive mutations are associated with pleiotropic fitness costs. In this context, we have followed the evolution of the frequencies of insecticide-resistant mutants of Cydia pomonella when reintroduced… CONTINUE READING
