Data from: Evolutionary optimum for male sexual traits characterized using the multivariate Robertson–Price Identity

Matthieu Delcourt, Mark W. Blows, J. David Aguirre & Howard D. Rundle
Phenotypes tend to remain relatively constant in natural populations, suggesting a limit to trait evolution. Although stationary phenotypes suggest stabilizing selection, directional selection is more commonly reported. However, selection on phenotypes will have no evolutionary consequence if the traits do not genetically covary with fitness, a covariance known as the Robertson–Price Identity. The nature of this genetic covariance determines if phenotypes will evolve directionally or whether they reside at an evolutionary optimum. Here, we show...
