The “Fitness landscape” metaphor is central to our ability to conceptualize how mutations generate new phenotypes and, in turn, variation in fitness. This metaphor has been instrumental in shaping collective mental pictures of how evolution proceeds, where the limits to innovation lie, and how adaptation emerges as a consequence of natural selection acting on phenotypic differences that are at least partly heritable.

Abstract

The “Fitness landscape” metaphor is central to our ability to conceptualize how mutations generate new phenotypes and, in turn, variation in fitness. This metaphor has been instrumental in shaping collective mental pictures of how evolution proceeds, where the limits to innovation lie, and how adaptation emerges as a consequence of natural selection acting on phenotypic differences that are at least partly heritable.
