Data from: Developmental instability is genetically correlated with phenotypic plasticity, constraining heritability, and fitness

Stephen J. Tonsor, Tarek W. Elnaccash & Samuel M. Scheiner
Although adaptive plasticity would seem always to be favored by selection, it occurs less often than expected. This lack of ubiquity suggests that there must be trade-offs, costs, or limitations associated with plasticity. Yet, few costs have been found. We explore one type of limitation, a correlation between plasticity and developmental instability, and use quantitative genetic theory to show why one should expect a genetic correlation. We test that hypothesis using the Landsberg erecta ×...
