Reconciling Strong Stabilizing Selection with the Maintenance of Genetic Variation in a Natural Population of Black Field Crickets ( Teleogryllus commodus )

Hunt, John; Blows, Mark; Zajitschek, Felix; Jennions, Michael; Brooks, Rob


Genetic variation in single traits, including those closely related to fitness, is pervasive and generally high. By contrast, theory predicts that several forms of selection, including stabilizing selection, will eliminate genetic variation. Stabilizing selection in natural populations tends to be stronger than that assumed in theoretical models of the maintenance of genetic variation. The widespread presence of genetic variation in the presence of strong stabilizing selection is a persistent...[Show more]
