-to measure strength of selection, one must first note who survives and reproduces and who
fails to do so, then the difference is quantified
-the first measure of selection is called the selection differential (S)
-the second measure of selection is called the selection gradient, which is calculated by:
x Assign absolute fitness to individuals in the population (survival to reproductive age)
x }vÀ}oµ(]v}o]À(]vÇoµo]vPZ]v]À]µo[o]À
fitness by dividing absolute fitness from mean fitness
x Make a scatterplot and the slope of the line of best fit is the selection gradient
-the selection gradient is equal to the selection differential divided by the variance in tail length
-selection gradient can be calculated for any measure of fitness and not just survival
2A^lÀ]v where 2 is the selection gradient and S is the selection differential
-evolutionary response to selection can be calculated from the heritability and selection
differential
R = h2S where R is the predicted response to selection, h2 is the heritability, and S is
the selection differential
-the slope of a graph of evolutionary response to selection measures the heritability
-in directional selection, fitness consistently increases or decreases with the value of a trait
-directional selection on a continuous trait changes the average value of the trait in the
population and slight reduces variation
-in stabilizing selection, individuals with intermediate values of a trait have highest fitness

population and increases variation
-all three modes of selection increase the mean fitness of the population
(refer to examples on pg348)
-directional selection and stabilizing selection are common whereas disruptive selection is rare
-disruptive selection and similar patterns of selection such as frequency dependent selection
may be more common than generally recognized, thereby increasing genetic variation in fitness

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
