Unformatted text preview: has an effect on fitness I.e. the life history of Arabidopsis: shade out competition, then invest in reproduction that maximizes their fitness. Trade- off between leaves to out- compete and grow tall to reproduce Ask why the trait is that way and not another way Assume the trait is optimal and that selection can drive it to that optimal state Does the fitness effect of the trait depend on the state of the population? If so: create a model of the trait (purely phenotypic) and relate the trait to fitness mathematically- but masure your model takes into account the state of the rest of the population. Find the evolutionary stable state If not: create a model of the trait (purely p...
