FIGURE 7.9 Types of Selection-Stabilizing, Directional, and Disruptive

(a) In stabilizing selection, extremes are eliminated, leading to a narrowing of the variation. (b) In directional selection, one extreme is eliminated, shifting the curve. (c) In disruptive selection, individuals with intermediate variation are eliminated, producing two bell-shaped curves at the extremes.
