Two models of evolutionary change invoke either additive genetic contributions to phenotypic traits (Fisher) or epistatic as well as additive effects (Wright). An earlier study of the flower-breeding Drosophila hibisci from two sites in eastern Australia reported additive and epistatic genetic effects as well as environmental effects on ovariole number. The present study of the same flies examines the genetic architecture of wing width, a trait that is correlated phenotypically with ovariole… CONTINUE READING
