Antagonistic co-evolution, such as the pursuit and flight of host-parasite co-evolution, easily generates cyclical co-evolutionary dynamics. It is well known that a fluctuating, contrary environment may favour the evolution of recombination, but previous analyses have shown that the optimal rate of recombination declines as the period of the environmental fluctuations gets longer. It is here shown that the direction of selection for recombination (for higher or lower rates) may only be… CONTINUE READING
