An End to Endless Forms: Epistasis, Phenotype Distribution Bias, and Nonuniform Evolution

Figure 8

The distribution of pairwise phenotypic Hamming distances among randomly selected phenotypes (not produced by a developmental plan) and visible phenotypes (including all occurrences of each phenotype) produced by developmental plans with varying levels of density, c.

Each curve represents the average of 100 different plans. Due to computational constraints, the regulatory dimension, r, and the phenotypic dimension, k, are both set to 10.
