Direct and indirect phenotypic selection on developmental trajectories in Manduca sexta

  title={Direct and indirect phenotypic selection on developmental trajectories in Manduca sexta},
  author={Joel G Kingsolver and Sarah E Diamond and Sarah A. Seiter and Jessica K. Higgins},
1. Adult size and development time are the outcomes of growth and differentiation throughout the life of an individual organism – its developmental trajectory. Correlations among ages and sizes across different life stages may influence both direct and indirect components of selection on body size and age during development. 2. We used two field studies in experimental gardens in fall and summer to evaluate phenotypic selection on size and age across larval, pupal and adult stages in the… CONTINUE READING
