For a one locus n-allele genetic model of natural selection two theoretical predictions are obtained: first, that the non-equilibrium average fitness value, W(t) is always between the equilibrium value, W*, and W*-H(po, p*) t until finally W(t) = W* and, secondly, that the area bounded by W* and the curve W(t) is equal to H(p0,p*), the entropy distance between initial (p0) and equilibrium (p*) gene frequency distributions. The experimental observations corresponding to these predictions are discussed.
