What is a common cause of stabilizing selection?

Report as

The frequency of traits is what selection acts upon. Stabilizing selection is the most common form of natural selection and is most commonly shown in the birth weight of human babies. The frequency distribution is unchanged from the previous generation.

During stabilizing selection, major differences are removed which is similar to natural selection. For more information, please visit http://www.globalchange.umich.edu/globalchange1/current/lectures/selection/selection.html.

A cause of stabilizing selection is you don't want a lot of defects so you select it out. For example, you have amniocentesis so you can find out if the baby may have a disorder and give you the option to abort.

Severe varieties from both ends of the frequency distribution under stabilizing selection are taken away. The frequency distribution looks accurately as it carried out in the generation before.
