Developmental instability is genetically correlated with phenotypic plasticity, constraining heritability, and fitness.

Abstract

Although adaptive plasticity would seem always to be favored by selection, it occurs less often than expected. This lack of ubiquity suggests that there must be trade-offs, costs, or limitations associated with plasticity. Yet, few costs have been found. We explore one type of limitation, a correlation between plasticity and developmental instability, and… (More)
