- The dynamic effects of an inducible defense in the Nicholson-Bailey model
Department of Physiological Ecology, Max Planck Institute of Limnology, P O Box 165, 24302 Plön, Germany
Theor Popul Biol 70:43-55. 2006
..Second, a fast increase in the proportion of defended prey can create predator-prey cycles as the result of an over-compensating negative feedback. Non-equilibrium dynamics of the model are extremely complex...
- Multilocus genetics and the coevolution of quantitative traits
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Tennessee, 1416 Circle Drive, Knoxville, Tennessee 37996, USA
Evolution 60:1321-36. 2006
..Second, the genetic variances change dynamically, which in turn significantly affects the dynamics of the mean trait values. In particular, the dynamics tend to be destabilized by an increase in the number of loci...
- The evolution of genetic architecture under frequency-dependent disruptive selection
Section of Evolutionary Biology, Department of Biology II, Ludwig Maximilian University Munich, Grosshadernerstrasse 2, 82152 Martinsried, Germany
Evolution 60:1537-50. 2006
..As such, it should be seen as a potential evolutionary pathway to discrete polymorphisms and as a potential alternative to other evolutionary responses, such as the evolution of sexual dimorphism or assortative mating...
- Adaptation of a quantitative trait to a moving optimum
Section of Evolutionary Biology, Department Biology II, Ludwig Maximilian University, Munich, Germany
Genetics 176:715-9. 2007
..If the environment is rate limiting, mutations with a small phenotypic effect are preferred over large mutations, in contrast to standard theory...
- An analytically tractable model for competitive speciation
Pleuni S Pennings
Section of Evolutionary Biology, Department of Biology II, Ludwig Maximilians University Munich, Grosshaderner Strasse 2, D 82152 Planegg Martinsried, Germany
Am Nat 171:E44-71. 2008
..The results demonstrate how even in a simple model, the evolutionary outcome depends in a complex way on ecological and genetic parameters...
- "Augmented reality" in conventional simulation by projection of 3-D structures into 2-D images: a comparison with virtual methods
University Clinic for Radiotherapy and Radio Oncology, Salzburg, Austria
Strahlenther Onkol 184:93-9. 2008
..In this study, a new method is introduced, which allows the overlay of three-dimensional structures, that have been delineated on transverse slices, onto the fluoroscopy from conventional simulators in real time...
