A simple stochastic model assuming continuous traits, normally distributed modifications, selection for fertility and multiplicative fitness was used to simulate phenotypic evolution by “reproducing individuals” in a given fitness landscape. Of particular interest was how small populations cross saddles separating distinct adaptive peaks. The simulated… (More)
