About the Event

All  natural populations are structured to some extent. A major challenge in  theoretical evolutionary ecology is to take into account this structure  when modelling the feedback between ecological and evolutionary  dynamics. In this talk, I will discuss how the concept of reproductive  value can be used and extended to shed light on the interplay between  demography and selection for relatively general ecological scenarios. As  a case study, I will then apply this framework to analyze selection in  periodically varying environments, using a model for the evolution of  pathogen life-history traits in class-structured host populations.
