discontinuous variation

Variation where individuals can be classified as belonging to one of a set of discrete, non-overlapping classes. Generated by simple genetic control of a trait (one or a small number of genes, each of large effect) and involving minimal non-genetic effect. Characters showing discontinuous variation are referred to as qualitative.
