From this book; If generations overlap, then the effective population size $N_e$ does not equal the population size $N$. I know mathematical formulations in order to find the effective population ...
Let's think of a species which has four generations per year and which population size changes from season to season so that the population size is 100 in summer, 200 in spring, 50 in autumn and 20 in ...
Linkage disequilibrium ($D$) for two bi-allelic loci is defined as: $$D=X_1X_4 - X_2X_3$$ , where $X_1$, $X_2$, $X_3$, $X_4$ are the frequencies of the haplotypes $A_1B_1$, $A_2B_1$, $A_1B_2$, ...
Let’s consider two linked loci $A$ and $B$ that are both bi-allelic. In consequence, we have four different possible haplotypes $A_1B_1$, $A_2B_1$, $A_1B_2$, $A_2B_2$, which frequencies are $X_1$, ...
I was reading this question and I failed to fully understand the introductory part of it. The OP (@Artem Kaznatcheev) says: Most analytic models like to assume weak selection because it allows ...
In evolutionary game theory, it is typical to model organisms as having a base fitness that is modified slightly by the game interaction. The ratio of the game effect versus the base fitness ...
When are population dynamics models useful? There seems to have been a lot of research about it, but how does it help? If I need data about how a population will evolve under what conditions, I need ...
