In this work we model the dynamics of a population that evolves as a continuous time branching process with a trait structure and ecological interactions in form of mutations and competition between individuals. We generalize existing microscopic models by allowing individuals to have multiple offspring at a reproduction event. Furthermore, we allow the reproduction law to be influenced both by the trait type of the parent as well as by the mutant trait type. We look for tractable large… 
An evolution model with uncountably many alleles
We study a class of evolution models, where the breeding process involves an arbitrary exchangeable process, allowing for mutations to appear. The population size n is fixed, hence after breeding,
Ancestral lineages in spatial population models with local regulation
TLDR
It is explained how an ancestral lineage can be interpreted as a random walk in a dynamic random environment and defined regeneration times allows to prove central limit theorems for such walks.

Lévy flights in evolutionary ecology
TLDR
It is shown that depending on the allometry coefficient the limit behavior of the population process can be approximated by nonlinear Lévy flights of different nature: either deterministic, in the form of non-local fractional reaction–diffusion equations, or stochastic, as nonlinear super-processes with the underlying reaction and a fractional diffusion operator.
Nonlinear historical superprocess approximations for population models with past dependence
We are interested in the evolving genealogy of a birth and death process with trait structure and ecological interactions. Traits are hereditarily transmitted from a parent to its offspring unless a
From Individual Stochastic Processes to Macroscopic Models in Adaptive Evolution
TLDR
In the limit of rare mutations, it is shown that a possible approximation is a jump process, justifying rigorously the so-called trait substitution sequence, and unify different points of view concerning mutation-selection evolutionary models.
The branching process with logistic growth
In order to model random density-dependence in population dynamics, we construct the random analogue of the well-known logistic process in the branching processes’ framework. This density-dependence
Adaptive Dynamics: A Geometrical Study of the Consequences of Nearly Faithful Reproduction
We set out to explore a class of stochastic processes called, 'adaptive dynamics', which supposedly capture some of the essentials of the long-term biological evolution. These processes have a strong
Measure-Valued Branching Diffusions with Singular Interactions
Abstract The usual super-Brownian motion is a measure-valued process that arises as a high density limit of a system of branching Brownian particles in which the branching mechanism is critical. In
Rigorous results for a population model with selection II: genealogy of the population
We consider a model of a population of fixed size $N$ undergoing selection. Each individual acquires beneficial mutations at rate $\mu_N$, and each beneficial mutation increases the individual's

We consider a model of a population of fixed size $N$ undergoing selection. Each individual acquires beneficial mutations at rate $\mu_N$, and each beneficial mutation increases the individual's
A microscopic probabilistic description of a locally regulated population and macroscopic approximations
TLDR
This work generalizes a discrete model describing a locally regulated spatial population with mortality selection by adding spatial dependence and gives a path-wise description in terms of Poisson point measures.
