TO test whether quantitative traits are under directional or homogenizing selection, it is common practice to compare population differentiation estimates at molecular markers (FST) (Wright 1951) and quantitative traits (QST) (Spitze 1993). If the trait is neutral and its determinism additive, then theory predicts that QST 1⁄4 FST, while QST . FST is predicted under directional selection for different local optima, and QST , FST is predicted under homogenizing selection (Merila and Crnokrak… CONTINUE READING
