Model-based estimation of individual ® tness

  title={Model-based estimation of individual ® tness},
  author={William Link and Evan G. Cooch and Emmanuelle Cam},
Fitness is the cur rency of natural selection, a measure of the propagation rate of genotypes into future generations. Its various de® nitions have the common feature that they are functions of survival and fertility rates. At the individual level, the operative level for natural selection, these rates must be understood as latent features, genetically determined propensities existing at birth. This conception of rates requires that individual ® tness be de® ned and estimated by consideration… CONTINUE READING
