Correction of ‘An equilibrium for phenotypic variance in fluctuating environments owing to epigenetics’

J. R. Soc. Interface 9, 613–623. (2012, Published online 17 August 2011). (doi:10.1098/rsif.2011.0390)

In the discussion of our paper Carja & Feldman [1], a citation to the paper by David Haig [2] should be included in the following two sentences:

‘From an evolutionary perspective, epigenetic variation is, for the most part, likely to be subservient to the evolving DNA sequence’.

‘That is, the machinery of epigenetic modification (e.g. DNA methyltransferases, histone deacetylases, etc.) is encoded by the DNA sequence and whether a particular sequence is subject to epigenetic modification will be determined, in part, by properties of the sequence itself.’ was omitted. We are correcting this omission herewith.
