Abstract:

A useful interpretation of quantitative genetic models of evolutionary change is that they (i) define a set of phenotypes that have a causal effect on fitness and on which selection acts, and (ii) define a set of breeding values that change as a correlated response to that selection because they covary with the phenotypes.

When the expression of one trait causes variation in other traits then there are multiple paths by which a trait can cause fitness variation. Because of this, the...
