Long term behaviour of spatial population models with heterozygous or asymmetric homozygous selection
We investigate the long term behaviour of two models for the spatial distribution of alleles in a diploid population, one with asymmetric selection in favour of the homozygotes, and one with selection in favour of the heterozygote.
We model the population with asymmetric homozygous selection using a version of the spatial Λ-Fleming-Viot process. We identify three regimes. For very small values of the asymmetry, the limiting behaviour of the process is the same as for the case with s...Expand abstract
