Evolutionary suicide in a discrete time metapopulation model
Evolutionary Ecology Research 9, 619-633
Question: Can the Allee effect promote evolutionary suicide by dispersal evolution in a discrete-time metapopulation model?Back to all articles
Mathematical Methods: Adaptive dynamics.
Features of Model: Metapopulation consisting of infnitely many patches. Local dynamics,
dispersal and catastrophe events defined in discrete time.
Results: Fitness-based calculations show that evolutionary suicide can happen in the model.
Evolutionary simulations support the result.
After evolutionary branching, dimorphic evolutionary suicide does not happen.
