Item Type: Article
Additional Information: Originality: introduces spatial constraints to a population genetics models of niche construction. Shows how space favours the evolution of niche construction and the maintenance of polymorphisms. Rigour: applies individual-based modelling techniques and several tools for analysis of results. Significance: indicates how more realistic scenarios (spatial constraints) actually favour the effects of niche construction in evolving populations of agents interacting with environmental resources. It shows for the first time the effects of multi-species niche construction and how it may be conducive to environmental stability. Outlet/citation: top journal of mathematical and population biology (impact factor 2.007). Recent paper.
