We present a review of the Tangled Nature model. The model is developed to focus on the effect of evolution and multiple interactions on ecological and evolutionary observables. The model is individual based and ecological structures, such as species, are emergent quantities. The dynamics consists of a simplistic mutation-prone multiplication in which the probability of producing an offspring is determined by the occupancy in genotype space. The macroscopic long time dynamics is intermittent… CONTINUE READING
