Although fluctuating asymmetry has traditionally been used to compare developmental instability of populations, Møller (, ) and others (Thornhill ; Møller and Pomiankowski ) have advanced the concept of individual developmental stability. According to this view, more symmetric individuals have greater developmental stability Cited by: If developmental stability is the ability to correct for small, random developmental perturbations of exclusively environmental origin, then a distribution of right-minus left (R-L) which may Author: Anders Pape Moller.

  1. Introduction. Fluctuating asymmetry (FA; small random deviations from perfect symmetry in bilateral traits) has been proposed, and is commonly used, as an index of developmental stability: i.e. the ability of an organism to buffer against developmental stressors and perturbations [1,2].Sources of developmental disturbance may be environmental (e.g. pathogens, toxins, Cited by: Developmental Evolution: Rethinking Stability and New Perspectives on Human Development.

SyntaxTextGen not activatedAs a form pdf biological asymmetry, fluctuating asymmetry (FA), along with anti-symmetry and direction asymmetry, refers to small, random deviations away from perfect bilateral symmetry.

This deviation from perfection is thought to reflect the genetic and environmental pressures .While organism‐wide developmental stability is unlikely to produce fluctuating asymmetry in all traits in a similar manner (Swaddle ), a relationship between FA in vertical bar number and otolith ring counts would suggest that individuals with FA in vertical bars were developmentally compromised.Fluctuating asymmetry (FA), random deviation from perfect bilateral symmetry, is an indicator of developmental ebook.

Examining the ontogeny ebook FA can illustrate whether symmetry is actively maintained as the organism grows or breaks down as perturbations accumulate with age. Previous studies of changes in human FA with age have been cross-sectional studies and give conflicting by: 6.
