Evolution of highly fecund organisms

Abstract:

We develop and study the high-density limit of various new models in mathematical pop- ulation genetics. These models extend the Λ-Fleming–Viot process when there are two genetic types at the locus of study. Given a finite sample from a population undergoing these dynamics, a key tool for understanding the corresponding genealogy is the method of duality.

We introduce the reproduction-linked mutation mechanism and consider how this affects the process of relative allelic frequencies...
