Clumping effects in models of isolation by distance

  • Aidan Sudbury (a1)


Individuals situated on the infinite line breed and produce offspring that independently migrate a distance that is a random variable depending on the number in each family. It is shown that under very general conditions the individuals in the nth generation will tend to form clumps.
