Influence of plasticity and learning on evolution under directional selection

Paenke, Ingo ; Sendhoff, Bernhard ; Kawecki, Tadeusz J.

In: American Naturalist, 2007, vol. 170, no. 2, p. E47-E58

Phenotypic plasticity and related processes (learning, developmental noise) have been proposed to both accelerate and slow down genetically based evolutionary change. While both views have been supported by various mathematical models and simulations, no general predictions have been offered as to when these alternative outcomes should occur. Here we propose a general framework to study the...
