Title: A methodology for evaluation of parent-mutant competition using a generalized non-linear ecosystem model

Author: Czaplewski, Raymond L.

Date: 1973

Source: Journal of Theoretical Biology. 40(3): 429-439.

Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: A generalized, non-linear population dynamics model of an ecosystem is used to investigate the direction of selective pressures upon a mutant by studying the competition between parent and mutant populations. The model has the advantages of considering selection as operating on the phenotype, of retaining the interaction of the mutant population with the ecosystem as a whole, and of setting a reasonable balance between theoretical manageability and quantitative testability.

Keywords: parent-mutant competition, generalized non-linear population dynamics model, ecosystem, selective pressures
