Modelling the Evolution of Spatially Distributed Populations in the Uniformly Changing Environment - Sympatric Speciation

  title={Modelling the Evolution of Spatially Distributed Populations in the Uniformly Changing Environment - Sympatric Speciation},
  author={Wojciech Waga and Marta Zawierta and Stanislaw Cebrat},
  journal={arXiv: Populations and Evolution},
We have simulated the evolution of age structured populations whose individuals represented by their diploid genomes were distributed on a square lattice. The environmental conditions on the whole territory changed simultaneously in the same way by switching on or off some requirements. Mutations accumulated in the genes dispensable during a given period of time were neutral, but they could cause a genetic death of individuals if the environment required their functions again.

The Role Of Haplotype Complementation And Purifying Selection In The Genome Evolution
Two different ways of evolution for chromosomes and genomes are discussed, where purifying selection dominates in large panmictic populations, and if the populations are small, recombination processes are not effective enough to ensure an independent assortment of linked genes, and larger clusters of genes could be inherited as genetic units.

Evolution of biodiversity and sympatric speciation through competition in a unimodal distribution of resources
A microscopic agent-based dynamical model for diploid age-structured populations is used to study the evolution of biodiversity and sympatric speciation and identifies the regions where an autonomous emergence of stable biodiversity or speciation is more likely. Expand
Sympatric speciation as intrinsic property of the expanding population
The computer modeling reveals that sympatric speciation is an intrinsic property of the expanding populations with differentiated inbreeding—higher at the edges and lower inside the territory. Expand
Phase Transition in Sexual Reproduction and Biological Evolution
Using Monte Carlo model of biological evolution we have discovered that populations can switch between two different strategies of their genomes' evolution; Darwinian purifying selection andExpand
The role of intragenomic recombination rate in the evolution of population's genetic pool
It is shown that frequency of recombination between haplotypes during the gamete production influences the effectiveness of the reproduction strategy and even short fragment of chromosome with restricted recombination influences the genetic structure of neighboring regions. Expand
Monte Carlo Simulations Of The Inside Intron Recombination
It is found that inside intron recombination is advantageous only in the case when after recombination, besides the recombinant forms, parental haplotypes are available and selection is set already on gametes. Expand
Gamete recognition and complementary haplotypes in sexual Penna ageing model
With rare recombinations the bit-string evolve to be complementary; with recombination rate above about 0.1 instead they evolve under Darwinian purification selection, with few bits mutated. Expand

A detailed mathematical model dealing with incompatibility between autonomous homogenic plasmids and based on the assumption that the intracellular plasmid copy pool is randomized with respect to assortment during cell division is presented. Expand
Simulated self-organization of death by inherited mutations.
The results indicate that death seems needed to allow for evolution of the fittest, as required by a changing environment. Expand
The Genetical Theory of Natural Selection
PROBABLY most geneticists to-day are some-what sceptical as to the value of the mathematical treatment of their problems. With the deepest respect, and even awe, for that association of complexExpand
Systematic functional analysis of the Caenorhabditis elegans genome using RNAi
It is found that genes of similar functions are clustered in distinct, multi-megabase regions of individual chromosomes; genes in these regions tend to share transcriptional profiles. Expand
