Increase in developmental instability upon inbreeding in Daphnia

Abstract

Lerner's genetic homeostasis theory (1954) hypothesizes that developmental instability (DI) will be higher for individuals with lower genomic heterozygosity. Because the usual indices of DI may confound genetic effects with random developmental process, most previous tests of the hypothesis may have explanational difficulties. I shall present an alternative… (More)
