Natural selection acts on phenotypes, regardless of their genetic basis, and produces immediate phenotypic effects within a generation that can be measured without recourse to principles of heredity or evolution. In contrast, evolutionary response to selection, the genetic change that occurs from one generation to the next, does depend on genetic variation. Animal and plant breeders routinely distinguish phenotypic selection from evolutionary response to selection (Mayo, 1980; Falconer, 1981… Expand
Natural Selection, Variation, Adaptation, and Evolution: A Primer of Interrelated Concepts
  • R. Latta
  • Biology
  • International Journal of Plant Sciences
  • 2010
TLDR
It is reviewed how the basic model of single-trait viability selection has been extended to more complex forms of selection on multiple traits and on reaction norms. Expand
A general model of the relation between phenotypic selection and genetic response
TLDR
A general selection equation is derived that takes into account the possibility that some relevant (internal or external) traits are not measured, and shows that the classic equation applies if selection directly acts on the measured, phenotypic traits. Expand
SELECTION AND EVOLUTION OF CAUSALLY COVARYING TRAITS
  • M. Morrissey
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2014
TLDR
By formally defining “extended” selection gradients, which are the total effects of traits on fitness, as opposed to the existing definition of selectionGradients, a more intuitive scheme for characterizing selection is obtained. Expand
Inheritance and Natural Selection on Functional Traits
TLDR
Only weak evidence is found that traits under strong selection have low heritability, a pattern that has been reported for animals and predicted by some theory, and the rate of evolutionary change may well differ among traits. Expand
AN EXACT FORM OF THE BREEDER'S EQUATION FOR THE EVOLUTION OF A QUANTITATIVE TRAIT UNDER NATURAL SELECTION
  • J. Heywood
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2005
TLDR
It is shown that all five components of phenotypic evolution will generally have nonzero values as a result of various combinations of the normal features of Mendelian populations, including biparental sex, allelic dominance, inbreeding, epistasis, linkage disequilibrium, and environmental covariances between traits. Expand
On the quantitative genetics of correlated characters under directional selection in age-structured populations
TLDR
The theory of quantitative genetics of correlated characters under directional selection is extended to incorporate some demographic properties of non-equilibrium age-structured populations, and the application of the theory to evolution in commercially exploited populations of fish is discussed. Expand
Multilevel Selection 1: Quantitative Genetics of Inheritance and Response to Selection
TLDR
Results show that interaction among individuals may create substantial heritable variation, which is hidden to classical analyses, and provides testable predictions of response to multilevel selection and reduces to classical theory in the absence of interaction. Expand
Phenotypic plasticity and experimental evolution
TLDR
It is suggested that any selection experiment in which the selective event is more than instantaneous should explore whether plasticity in the appropriate (adaptive) direction has increased as a component of the response to selection. Expand
MEASURES OF PHENOTYPIC SELECTION ARE BIASED BY PARTIAL INBREEDING
  • J. Willis
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1996
TLDR
Data is presented from several inbreeding experiments conducted on two partially selfing, annual populations of the monkeyflower Mimulus guttatus that show that the means of many of the morphological and phenological traits measured were affected by inbreeding, implying that estimates of heritabilities and additive genetic covariances would not reflect the potential for these populations to respond to selection. Expand
SELECTION ON HERITABLE VARIATION
TLDR
An important assumption in the study of microevolution is illustrated: that the environments experienced during growth to maturity by the parental and offspring generations are the same, for otherwise a measured difference between generations may have a partly environmental cause, thereby giving a misleading estimate of the evolutionary response to selection.

  • R. Lande
  • Biology, Medicine

  • 1979
TLDR
Methods of multivariate analysis, functional analysis and optimality criteria popular among evolutionists, do not account for dynamical constraints imposed by the pattern of genetic variation within populations. Expand
SELECTION IN NATURAL POPULATIONS. III. MEASUREMENT AND ESTIMATION
TLDR
It is perfectly true, as these authors have noted in somewhat different ways, that selection for generally favorable alleles will improve population fitness over what it would have been without such alleles, but it does not follow from the fact that a change will be good for a population, that it will happen.

The Genetic Covariance between Characters Maintained by Pleiotropic Mutations.
TLDR
Approximate expressions for the dynamics of the genetic covariances due to pleiotropic mutations are obtained and patterns of genetic covariance between characters and their evolution are discussed with reference to data on polygenic mutation, chromosomal organization and morphological integration.

A Quantitative Genetic Theory of Life History Evolution
Dynamic models of quantitative (polygenic) characters are more generally applicable in the analysis of life history evolution than are static optimization methods or one and two locus genetic models.Expand

TLDR
This study quantifies natural selection acting through differential survivorship of juveniles of the desert side-blotched lizard, Uta stansburiana stejnegeri by collecting Morphological data from adults and juveniles collected simultaneously, and for a "horizontal" comparison from a juvenile cohort monitored over time.

Measurement of Natural Selection in Natural Populations
TLDR
Van Valen's measure of natural selection intensity is actually a special case of Haldane's I, and may be defined as the minimum reduction of the original population that would yield a population with specified values of the parameter or set of parameters. Expand
Introduction to quantitative genetics
TLDR
For the next few weeks the course is going to be exploring a field that’s actually older than classical population genetics, although the approach it’ll be taking to it involves the use of population genetic machinery. Expand
HERITABILITY OF SOME MORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERS IN A SONG SPARROW POPULATION
TLDR
To evaluate the evolutionary significance of intraspecific morphological variation, the heritability of quantitative traits is investigated to use the standard parent-offspring regression techniques of quantitative genetics, which has seldom been used in the field. Expand
