By means of a population genetical model, we study the evolution of segregation distortion. Most models of segregation distortion focus on a single distorter allele. In contrast, we consider the competition between a large number of distorters. Motivated by systems as the t complex of the house mouse or the Sd complex of Drosophila melanogaster, we assume that there is some "complementation" between distorter alleles, i.e. that the fitness of individuals heterozygous for two distorter alleles… CONTINUE READING
