Description: Environmentally induced phenotypes have been proposed to initiate and bias adaptive evolutionary change towards particular directions. The potential for this to happen depends in part on how well plastic responses are aligned with the additive genetic variance and covariance in traits. Using meta-analysis, we test whether plastic responses to novel environments tend to occur along phenotype dimensions that harbour substantial amounts of additive genetic variation.


This respository contains the raw matrices extracted from the literature, the code for simulating matrices, the code for taking simulated data and deriving means and sampling variance and adding these data together with the meta-adata extracted from each study, and also the code for estimating meta-analytic model parameters. Users can use the '.Rmd' code script to run various aspects of the analys...
