    Benjamin L Phillips
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Sydney, Sydney, New South Wales 2006, Australia
    Am Nat 172:S34-48. 2008
    ..For accurate long-range forecasts of range advance, we need to take into account the potential for dispersal kernels to be evolutionarily dynamic...

    Justin M J Travis
    Centre for Conservation Science, University of St Andrews, Fife, United Kingdom
    J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci 59:301-5. 2004
    ..Within this model, individuals are genetically programmed to die, even though they are still able to reproduce. These results suggest that death can be adaptive and offer an explanation for the evolution of "death genes."..
