    Heredity (Edinb) 83:103-9. 1999
    ..The role of epistasis should not be discounted either, since a large number of loci increases the potential for epistatic interactions, and epistasis is strongly implicated in hybrid breakdown...

    Nature 412:76-9. 2001
    ..The mismatch between response to selection at the levels of genotype and phenotype can be explained by environmental deterioration, concealing underlying evolution. This form of cryptic evolution may be common in natural environments...

    V Lummaa
    Department of Biology, University of Turku, Finland
    Proc Biol Sci 265:563-8. 1998
    ..However, the strength of these patterns varied across the parishes, suggesting that factors other than OSR (e.g. socioeconomic or environmental factors may also have influenced the sex ratio at birth and the birth rate...
