Figure 9.1 Examples of continuous quantitative trait distributions. The top panels show the distributions of body length and weight in a sample of 3-year-old striped bass (Morone saxatilis). The bottom panels are pupal mass distributions for mosquitoes raised in laboratory or field conditions. Each panel gives the sample size (n), mean, variance, and coefficient of variation (CV) that quantify the phenotypic distribution. Striped bass data are from L. Pieper (unpublished results). Mosquito pupal mass data from Armbruster and Conn (2006) and P. Armbruster (unpublished results).
