'Haldane's Sieve' in a metapopulation: sifting through plant reproductive polymorphisms.
An important result of population genetics is that advantageous mutations will be fixed by selection in a population with a greater probability if they are dominant rather than recessive. This selective filter on new variants entering a population, termed 'Haldane's Sieve', has hitherto been invoked to account for the greater role of dominant than completely recessive mutations in adaptive evolution. Here, we suggest that a process similar to Haldane's Sieve will act on migrants into subpopul...Expand abstract
