– We introduce a simple computational model that, with microscopic dynamics driven by natural selection and mutation alone, allows the description of true speciation events. A statistical analysis of the evolutionary tree so generated captures realistic features showing power laws for frequency distributions in time and size. Finally, some possible interpretations of the absence of punctuated dynamics with mass extinctions are worked out. The novel interpretation for old paleontological… CONTINUE READING
