A unified measure of linear and nonlinear selection on quantitative traits

Henshaw, Jonathan; Zemel, Yoav


1. Lande and Arnold’s approach to quantifying natural selection has become a standard tool in evolutionary biology due to its simplicity and generality. It treats linear and nonlinear selection in two separate frameworks, generating coefficients of selection (e.g. linear and quadratic selection gradients) that are not directly comparable. Due to this somewhat artificial division, the Lande–Arnold approach lacks an integrated measure of the strength of selection that applies across qualitatively...[Show more]
