ABSTRACT
Reports that selection on quantitative trait loci (QTL) for fitness traits in the model plant species Arabidopsis thaliana differs among natural ecological settings and genetic backgrounds. Suggestion that the allelic fitness effects of two QTL reversed direction depending on the genotype at the other locus; Indication that both environmental heterogeneity and epistatic selection may maintain genetic variation for fitness in wild plant species.
