Long-term Sabbatical

Evolution in a spatial context: a synthesis of theory and review

PI(s): Michael Whitlock (University of British Columbia)
Start Date: 1-Sep-2006
End Date: 31-May-2007
Keywords: population genetics, population ecology, mathematical modeling

During the tenure of this sabbatical, I will address two overlapping goals: (1) to complete the formulation of a general population genetics model of evolution in spatially structured populations and (2) to write a monograph that reviews the modern state of empirical and theoretical knowledge about evolution in space.
