We investigate the interplay between natural selection and genetic drift in a model for evolution in a spatial continuum. In particular, we ask the very basic question, how strong must selection be if we are to have any hope of seeing its signal in variation at linked loci?

This is joint work with Nic Freeman (Bristol) and Daniel Straulino (Oxford).
