  • 1. An experimental evaluation of Robertson's (1960) theory of limits in artificial selection was attempted. A number of lines from the Canberra base population were selected for abdominal bristle number over 50 generations with population sizes of 10, 20, and 40 pairs of parents and selection intensities of 10, 20 and 40% as well as unselected controls. 2. In general, the total response obtained increased with an increase in Nī (product of population size and standardized selection differential… CONTINUE READING
