Figure 1.

Average heterozygosity and mean fluctuating asymmetry in eight nine-spined stickleback ( Pungitius pungitius ) populations. Average (± S.E) heterozygosity was based on screening of variation in 23 microsatellite loci, and mean (± S.E.) fluctuating asymmetry on 12 bilateral traits as estimated by composite standardized relative asymmetry index (see Methods). For population abbreviations, see Figure 2.
