Data from: Directional selection effects on patterns of phenotypic (co)variation in wild populations

Ana Paula A. Assis, James L. Patton, Alex Hubbe & Gabriel Marroig
Phenotypic (co)variation is a prerequisite for evolutionary change, and understanding how (co)variation evolves is of crucial importance to the biological sciences. Theoretical models predict that under directional selection, phenotypic (co)variation should evolve in step with the underlying adaptive landscape, increasing the degree of correlation among co-selected traits as well as the amount of genetic variance in the direction of selection. Whether either of these outcomes occurs in natural populations is an open question and thus...
