Why do populations remain genetically variable despite strong continuous natural selection? Mutation reconstitutes variation eliminated by selection and genetic drift, but theoretical and experimental studies each suggest that mutation‐selection balance insufficient to explain extant genetic variation in most complex traits. The alternative hypothesis of balancing selection, wherein selection maintains genetic variation, is an aggregate of multiple mechanisms (spatial and temporal heterogeneity… Expand
Genotype-environment interaction and the maintenance of genetic variation: an empirical study of Lobelia inflata (Campanulaceae)
TLDR
Support is found for the temporal G × E hypothesis using a manipulated space-for-time approach across four environments: a field environment, an outdoor experimental plot and two differing growth-chamber environments, and it is found that rank-order fitness changed significantly across environments. Expand
Selective trade-offs maintain alleles underpinning complex trait variation in plants
TLDR
The results suggest that environmental fluctuations and selective trade-offs maintain polygenic trait variation within populations and also contribute to the geographic divergence in this wildflower species. Expand
The extent and genetic basis of phenotypic divergence in life history traits in Mimulus guttatus
TLDR
Findings of strong multivariate trait associations and pleiotropic QTLs suggest that patterns of genetic variation may determine the trajectory of adaptive divergence, similar to previous work showing pleiotropy‐mediated genetic correlations within a single population of M. guttatus experiencing heterogeneous selection. Expand
Balancing selection via life-history trade-offs maintains an inversion polymorphism in a seaweed fly
TLDR
The findings directly demonstrate how overdominance and sexual antagonism can emerge from a life-history trade-off, inviting reconsideration of antagonistic pleiotropy as a key part of multi-headed balancing selection processes that enable the persistence of genetic variation. Expand
Balancing selection via life-history trade-offs maintains an inversion polymorphism in a seaweed fly
TLDR
Using the seaweed fly Coelopa frigida, it is shown that a polymorphic chromosomal inversion is maintained by a trade-off between survival and reproduction, and thus provide empirical support for a role of balancing selection via antagonistic pleiotropy. Expand
Naturally segregating loci exhibit epistasis for fitness
TLDR
A multi-year field study estimating fitness of Mimulus guttatus genetic lines in which pairs of naturally segregating loci exist in an otherwise uniform background finds that the effects of each locus and their interaction often vary with the environment. Expand
A genomic selection component analysis characterizes migration‐selection balance
TLDR
This work renovates the classic selection component method to accommodate genomic data and observe selection at SNPs throughout the genome and finds that nonsignificant SNPs exhibit a subtle, but still significant, change in allele frequency toward neighboring populations, a predicted effect of gene flow. Expand
Antagonistic pleiotropy can maintain fitness variation in annual plants
TLDR
A model of viability and fecundity selection informed by many experiments on the yellow monkeyflower, Mimulus guttatus, is developed, applicable to many annual species and introduces both spatial heterogeneity and temporal stochasticity in environmental parameters. Expand
The genetic architecture of local adaptation and reproductive isolation in sympatry within the Mimulus guttatus species complex
TLDR
This study investigates the genetic architecture of divergence in flowering time, mating system‐related traits, and leaf shape between Mimulus laciniatus and a sympatric population of its close relative M. guttatus and finds that interspecific divergence in all three traits is due to few QTL of large effect including a highly pleiotropic QTL on chromosome 8. Expand
The genetic architecture and evolution of life-history divergence among perennials in the Mimulus guttatus species complex
TLDR
It is found that divergence in elevation is associated with differences in life-history, as well as a unique trait, the production of rhizomes, in a group of closely related perennials, and the genetic architecture of this divergence changes through development. Expand

TLDR
A novel experimental method is applied to parse the genetic variance of floral traits of the annual plant Mimulus guttatus into contributions of individual QTLs and finds that threeQTLs with moderate effects explain up to one-third of the Genetic variance in the natural population. Expand

A comprehensive survey of interactions among a defined set of flower-size QTL: loci polymorphic within a single natural population of yellow monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus) finds that epistasis is typical. Expand
Is local adaptation in Mimulus guttatus caused by trade‐offs at individual loci?
TLDR
No detectable evidence for trade‐offs for any one component of fitness is found, although DIV2 showed a trade‐off involving different fitness traits between sites, suggesting that local adaptation is largely controlled by non‐overlapping loci. Expand
THE GENETIC BASIS OF ADAPTIVE POPULATION DIFFERENTIATION: A QUANTITATIVE TRAIT LOCUS ANALYSIS OF FITNESS TRAITS IN TWO WILD BARLEY POPULATIONS FROM CONTRASTING HABITATS
TLDR
The data are consistent with the view that adaptive differentiation can be based on selection on multiple traits changing gradually along ecological gradients without QTLs showing opposite fitness effects in the different environments, that is, in the absence of genetic trade-offs in performance between environments.

TLDR
A simulation model is developed to investigate gene sequence evolution within genomic regions that harbor QTLs and suggests that selection can substantially affect quantitative genetic variation without altering the amount and pattern of molecular variation at sites closely linked to theQTLs.

DIVERGENT SELECTION ON FLOWERING TIME CONTRIBUTES TO LOCAL ADAPTATION IN MIMULUS GUTTATUS POPULATIONS
TLDR
Divergent selection on flowering time contributes to local adaptation between these two populations of M. guttatus, suggesting that genetic differentiation in the timing of reproduction may also serve as a partial reproductive isolating barrier to gene flow among populations. Expand

The combined results of the quantitative‐genetic and QTL analyses demonstrate that many loci of small effect underlie tolerance to damage by rabbits, and counter the hypothesis of locus‐specific tradeoffs between resistance and tolerance. Expand
Viability selection prior to trait expression is an essential component of natural selection

It is found that fecundity is positively related to flower size, however, survival to flowering is much lower in large-flowers genotypes than in small-flowered genotypes, differs from the great majority of field studies, which suggest strong positive selection on flower size. Expand

TLDR
The mathematical results and underlying biological requirements of the analyses are quite different from those of Lande but the results do not refute his hypothesis that considerable additive genetic variance may be maintained by mutation-selection balance, and it is argued that the validity of this hypothesis can only be determined with additional data and mathematics.
