Quantitative trait loci for directional but not fluctuating asymmetry of mandible characters in mice.

Abstract

Non-directional variation in right minus left differences in bilateral characters, referred to as fluctuating asymmetry (FA), often has been assumed to be largely or entirely environmental in origin. FA increasingly has been used as a measure of developmental stability, and its presumed environmental origin has facilitated the comparisons of populations… (More)
