Introduction
How selection and other forces such as genetic drift,
mutation and migration mould patterns of genetic
variation in natural populations is a central topic in
population genetics and evolutionary biology. These
questions attracted considerable interest among early
theoretical population geneticists (Fisher, 1930; Wright,
1931; Lewontin, 1974) and they continue to be in focus
of current evolutionary studies (Lynch & Walsh, 1998).
The fitness consequences and extent of adaptive genetic
variation in natural populations is of much interest to
ecologists and evolutionary biologists, which is exempli-
fied by many recent long-term field studies and
reciprocal transplant experiments in different taxa
(Mousseau et al., 2000). Several recent empirical studies
have demonstrated rapid evolutionary change and the
