Fixation of genes having large or small effects on a trait with an intermediate optimum.


Major genes affecting quantitative traits are widespread and well known. However, major genes affecting unimodally distributed quantitative traits appear to be rare in populations of outbreeding organisms. This may largely reflect methods of analysis, or it may reflect the interaction of chance and selection on the frequencies of such major genes. If many… (More)
