The geometric mean of fitness is considered to be the main indicator of evolutionary change in stochastic models. However, this measure was initially derived for models with infinite population sizes, where the long-term evolutionary behavior can be described with certainty. In this paper we begin an exploration of the limitations and utility of this approach to evolution in finite populations and discuss alternate methods for predicting evolutionary dynamics. We reanalyze a model of lottery… CONTINUE READING
