Data from: No effect of environmental heterogeneity on the maintenance of genetic variation in wing shape in Drosophila melanogaster

Sam Yeaman, Yukon Chen & Michael C. Whitlock
Theory suggests that heterogeneous environments should maintain more genetic variation within populations than homogeneous environments, yet experimental evidence for this effect in quantitative traits has been inconsistent. To examine the effect of heterogeneity on quantitative genetic variation, we maintained replicate populations of Drosophila melanogaster under treatments with constant temperatures, temporally variable temperature, or spatially variable temperature with either panmictic or limited migration. Despite observing differences in fitness and divergence in several wing traits between the...
