Genetic Origins of Speciation
Darwinian Daisyworld model from and Watson & Lovelock (1983), Robertson & Robinson (1998), enton & Lovelock (2001) and Heinzinger, Holm and Schuler (2016)

This shown model extends the conventional Daisyworld model from Watson & investigate the effects of speciation. Daisies in this model undergo random genetic mutation. This is subject to selection on its phenotypic consequences for the daisies' niche-construction. The diverse simulations were processed with different values of capacity of interbreeding theta, mutation rate mu and luminosity L.

Advices for using our model:
  • The capacity of interbreeding theta can be set from 0.5 up to 1.0
  • Any of the four different luminosities can be chosen
  • You can change the mutation rate mu from 0.009 up to 1 (maximum mutation rate). But with theta = 0.5, the lowest mutation rate mu is 0.01. Beneath this value, there is no growth.
