Self-fertilization is a common form of reproduction in plants and it has important implications for quantitative trait evolution. Here, I present a model of selection on quantitative traits that can accommodate any level of self-fertilization. The "structured linear model" (SLM) predicts the evolution of the mean phenotype as a function of three distinct quantities: the mean additive genetic value, the directional dominance, and the mean inbreeding coefficient. Stochastic simulations of… CONTINUE READING
