Phenotypic plasticity facilitates mutational variance, genetic variance, and evolvability along the major axis of environmental variation.

Phenotypically plastic genotypes express different phenotypes in different environments, often in adaptive ways. The evolution of phenotypic plasticity creates developmental systems that are more flexible along the trait dimensions that are more plastic, and as a result, we hypothesize that such traits will express greater mutational variance, genetic… CONTINUE READING
