Error propagation in reproduction of diploid organisms: A case study on single peaked landscapes. J. theo.
Nonlinear deterministic equations in biological evolution
For instance, the jumps may account for selective sweeps, or for extreme reproduction events (occurring on smaller time scales and in a random manner so that an effectively neutral evolution results), such as those observed in certain marine organisms, e.g.
Renormalisation of hierarchically interacting Cannings processes
Many ecologists define a parasite as an organism that lives in or on a host, from which it derives food and other biological necessities, and that reduces the fitness of the host by causing morbidity or death, or by decreasing its reproductive success (see, e.g., [167]).
Biological Evolution and Statistical Physics
That is, upon reproduction of an organism, two copies of a gene are erroneously made where only one existed before.
The structure and function of complex networks
More precisely, the organisms are incapable of living through successive reproduction cycles; an individual organism produces a litter of F offspring and immediately thereafter it dies.
Evolutionary ecology in-silico: Does mathematical modelling help in understanding the "generic" trends?
An organism becomes mature enough for reproduction only on attaining the age Arep ; beyond this age, the probability that it gives birth (simultaneously to M offsprings) varies with its age A.
Evolutionary ecology in-silico: Does mathematical modelling help in understanding the "generic" trends?
The principle formulated above yields the following rule for the model implemented below: evolution optimality in spatial distribution of organisms is equivalent to the maximization of (an average) net reproduction over space, with respect to the evolution trade off for such redistribution.
The simplest model of spatially distributed population with reasonable migration of organisms
Migration itself affects the reproduction, survival and other vital functions of an organism.
The simplest model of spatially distributed population with reasonable migration of organisms
All these issues will be integrated into the parameter called the cost of migration µ: no negative impact on the reproduction, survival and other vital functions of an organism is observed, as µ = 0.

However, for sexual reproduction of diploid organisms, another strategy is possible if (nearly) all mutations are recessive; we call this alternative “complementation”.
Review of haplotype complementarity under mutational pressure
In addition they observed that the strength of epistatic interactions is weaker in sexual organisms than in asexual ones and that the reproductive mode has a significant effect on the evolution of the genetic architecture.

The Emergence of Modularity in Biological Systems
An adaptation is property of the component organisms of a species that has been acquired because its presence has favoured the survival and reproduction of those organisms that possessed it.
