Evolutionary dynamics of fearfulness and boldness: a stochastic simulation model

PloS One

Mar 14, 2012

Nan LuYi Tao

Abstract

A stochastic simulation model is investigated for the evolution of anti-predator behavior in birds. The main goal is to reveal the effects of population size, predation threats, and energy lost per escape on the evolutionary dynamics of fearfulness and boldness. Two pure strategies, fea...read more
