Monte carlo simulations of parapatric speciation

Abstract

Parapatric speciation is studied using an individual–based model with sexual reproduction. We combine the theory of mutation accumulation for biological ageing with an environmental selection pressure that varies according to the individuals geographical positions and phenotypic traits. Fluctuations and genetic diversity of large populations are crucial… (More)
