Developmental Instability: Its Origins and Evolutionary Implications is a collection of papers and transcribed discussions from a conference held in Tempe, Arizona in June 1993. The papers represent a wide range of contributions, from the empirical to the theoretical, and include methods for measuring developmental instability across a variety of taxa and traits. This volume presents contrasting views on how to assess developmental instability as well as on the relationship of instability to genotypic factors, environmental factors and the action of natural and sexual selection. Readers will derive a working knowledge of the best way to assess developmental instability and will be able to design future work in an authoritative way.... sizes revealed a general decrease in morphological variability with heterozygosity (Yezerinac, Lougheed aamp; Handford, 1992). It is not expected that relationships between genetic variation and developmental stability would be constant; these ... of genetic variability within a species or the relative amounts of genetic variation in various populations within a species. ... linked to hundreds or thousands of other genes, but how far along a chromosome does linkage disequilibrium extend?
