Abstract

Computer simulation was used to relax assumptions of analytical life-cycle theory about the eventual outcome of evolution in a constant environment. The computer simulation models, of diploid one-locus genetic systems, are described in detail. Good agreement was obtained between the analytical and simulation outcomes, except in some cases of discrepancy between the male and female life cycles.
