Applicability of the Hypergeometric Phenotypic Model to Haploid and Diploid Populations

Abstract

We show that the phenotypic hypergeometric model of a quantitative trait can exactly describe both haploid and diploid populations. The condition necessary for this is equiprobability of genotypes within each phenotype. This requires equal allele frequencies across the loci, which may be the case when the population is under disruptive selection.
