Evolution of insecticide resistance, measured by the though the rate at which this occurred varied. The slowfrequency of a resistant allele and by population size, was est response to selection occurred when (I) the populasimulated on a computer. The effects of dominance, tion was diluted by immigrants, (2) population density initial gene frequency, refugia, immigration, and reprowas drastically suppressed by severe selection, and (3) ductive potential were studied singly with a deterministic… CONTINUE READING
