Levels of selection on threshold characters

Genetics

May 29, 2008

Jacob A Moorad, Timothy A Linksvayer

Abstract

Threshold models are useful for understanding the evolution of dimorphic traits with polygenic bases. Selection for threshold characters on individuals is expected to be frequency dependent because of the peculiar way that selection views underlying genetic and environmental factors. Se...read more
