The opportunity for selection: an important but slippery concept in ecology and evolution.

Thomas Reed, Thomas Reed, Marcel E. Visser & Robin Waples
1. The concept of the opportunity for selection (I), measured as the variance in relative fitness, is over 60 years old, yet remains poorly understood by, or even unknown to, many ecologists and evolutionary biologists. This essay aims to clarify key conceptual and practical issues concerning use and estimation of I, which represents a theoretical upper limit on the rate of evolutionary adaptation. 2. The component of I caused by linear selection on a single...
