One of the major unresolved issues in quantitative genetics is what accounts for the amount of standing genetic variation in traits. A wide range of models, all reviewed in this chapter, have been proposed, but none fit the data, either giving too much variation or too little apparent stabilizing selection.

Keywords:   apparent stabilizing selection, balancing selection, house-of-cards model, House-of-Gauss model, Hill-Keightley pleiotropic side-effects model, joint-effects model, Kimura-Lande-Fleming model, Latter-Bulmer model, pleiotropic overdominance, stabilizing selection, stochastic house-of-cards model
