Mechanisms leading to speciation are a major focus in evolutionary biology. In this paper, we present and study a stochastic model of population where individuals, with type a or A, are equivalent from ecological, demographical and spatial points of view, and differ only by their mating preference: two individuals with the same genotype have a higher(More)
Divergence between populations for a given trait can be driven by natural or sexual selection, interacting with migration behaviour. Mating preference for different phenotypes can lead to the emergence and persistence of differentiated populations, even without any local adaptation. However the genetic architecture underlying the trait targeted by mating(More)
We consider continuous state branching processes (CSBP’s) with additional multiplicative jumps modeling dramatic events in a random environment. These jumps are described by a Lévy process with bounded variation paths. We construct the associated class of processes as the unique solution of a stochastic differential equation. The quenched branching property(More)
In large adapting clonal species, several beneficial mutations can co-occur, affecting the process of adaptation. Several experimental and theoretical works showed that clonal interference can be an important factor limiting the rate of adaptation. However, models done so far do not embrace the diversity of observed dynamics in experiments, especially(More)
