Time-energy budgets and optimization

Abstract

Since the process of natural selection entails a comparison of phenotypes and choosing of the best, optimality theory appears appropriate to identify selection pressures. Optimality theory doesnot test whether an organism is designed optimally — it assumes it. The ingredients of a complete optimization model are outlined and two approaches are exemplified… (More)
