Abstract. Development is the process by which genotypes are transformed into phenotypes. Consequently, devel-
opment determines the relationship between allelic and phenotypic variation in a population and, therefore, the patterns
of quantitative genetic variation and covariation of traits. Understanding the developmental basis of quantitative traits
may lead to insights into the origin and evolution of quantitative genetic variation, the evolutionary fate of populations,
and, more generally, the relationship between development and evolution. Herein, we assume a hierarchical, modular
