SummaryA means of investigating selection in marginal populations by analysing the change in variation between generations within them is described. It is illustrated by the analysis of spot-number variation in Maniola jurtina. A greater constancy of female spot-average between generations is found within both the more marginal populations of central-eastern Scotland and the peripheral populations of the Isles of Scilly than within those more centrally located in southern England.
