5 Coping with variable environments (overview)

Here we look evolutionary adaptations to variable environments.

In this section:
  1. Coping with variable environments
  2. Individual versus population-based diversity
  3. Sparse fitness evaluation
    • History: local competition and co-evolution as optimization strategy (Hillis)
    • More of fitness
    • Sparse fitness evaluation (Pagie)
  4. Spatio-temporal pattern formation as prerequisite for evolving complex (regulatory) individuals
    • Evolved computation and (versus) mutational priming (Pagie)
  5. Mutational priming
    • Evolution of mutational priming (Crombach)
  6. Ecosystem-based problem solving
