Data from: Evolution of the additive genetic variance–covariance matrix under continuous directional selection on a complex behavioural phenotype

Vincent Careau, Matthew E. Wolak, Patrick A. Carter & Theodore Garland
Given the pace at which human-induced environmental changes occur, a pressing challenge is to determine the speed with which selection can drive evolutionary change. A key determinant of adaptive response to multivariate phenotypic selection is the additive genetic variance–covariance matrix (G). Yet knowledge of G in a population experiencing new or altered selection is not sufficient to predict selection response because G itself evolves in ways that are poorly understood. We experimentally evaluated changes in...
