Department of Mathematics, Wilfrid Laurier University, Ont, N2L 3C5 Waterloo, Canada
Theor Popul Biol 64:51933. 2003..Also discussed is how our theory relates to recent treatments of phenotypic coevolution via adaptive dynamics when there is a continuum of individual phenotypes...  Ideal free distributions, evolutionary games, and population dynamics in multiplespecies environmentsRoss Cressman
Department of Mathematics, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario N2L 3C5, Canada
Am Nat 164:47389. 2004..Alternatively, we also show that when two species are distributed according to the IFD, the corresponding population equilibrium can be unstable...  Measure dynamics on a onedimensional continuous trait space: theoretical foundations for adaptive dynamicsRoss Cressman
Department of Mathematics, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ont, N2L 3C5, Canada
Theor Popul Biol 67:4759. 2005..In the cases where adaptive dynamics predicts evolutionary branching, convergence to a dimorphism is established. Extensions of these results to general fitness functions and/or multidimensional trait space are discussed...  Stability of the replicator equation for a single species with a multidimensional continuous trait spaceRoss Cressman

Department of Mathematics, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada N2L 3C5
Theor Popul Biol 69:25362. 2006..The resultant concept is discussed in relation to that of an Nspecies ESS (evolutionarily stable strategy) and to dynamic stability of monomorphic and polymorphic evolutionary systems...  Migration dynamics for the ideal free distributionRoss Cressman
Department of Mathematics, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, N2L 3C5, Canada
Am Nat 168:38497. 2006..If animal migration tends (for each fixed population size) to the IFD, then the combined migrationpopulation dynamics evolve to the population IFD independent of the two timescales (i.e., behavioral vs. population)...  CSS, NIS and dynamic stability for twospecies behavioral models with continuous trait spacesRoss Cressman

J Theor Biol 262:809. 2010..The CSS and NIS are also shown to be special cases of neighborhood p(*) superiority for p(*) equal to one half and zero, respectively.

Theor Popul Biol 76:24857. 2009..These results generalize the concept of an evolutionarily stable strategy (ESS) to models in evolutionary ecology.
