Stochasticity in the adaptive dynamics of evolution: the bare bones
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2011

First a population model with one single type of individuals is considered. Individuals reproduce asexually by splitting into two, with a population size dependent probability. Population extinction, growth and persistence are studied. Subsequently results are extended to such a population with two competing morphs.Results are applied to a simple model, where morphs arise through mutation. The movement in trait space of a monomorphic population and its possible branching into polymorphism are discussed. This is a first report.It purports to display the basic conceptual structure of a simple exact probabilistic formulation of adaptive dynamics.
