Evolution Stimulation, Predatory Prey

EvolutionStimulation, Predatory Prey

Evolutionarydynamics can occur on similar time scales. However, hypotheticalpredictions of how rapid evolution can affect ecological dynamics areopen to doubt and often depend on untriedmodel assumption. It is reported that rapid prey evolution inresponse to oscillate predator density affects predator-prey cyclesin laboratory microcosms (Koivisto, Hoset, Le Tortorec, Norrdahl, &ampKorpimäki, 2016). The purpose for this paper is to achieveevolutionary stimulation by predatory.

Theinitial number for all colors is the same predators’ invasionstimulates evolution as they reduce the number of chip colors in theenvironment. Some colors become explicit, for instance, white becomesovert after it is eliminated from the environment, and hence, theycannot reproduce (Koivisto et al., 2016). It is vital to note thatthe larger the number of survivors, the larger the number beingproduced.

Thechip colors are stimulated to reproduce by the increased predation.In the first predation, there are lower numbers of chip colorsreproduced compare to the second and the third. This explains thatreproduction is stimulated by predators. The number of survivors isthe same in each predation. The percentage number of chip colors isalso the same in all predation stages (Koivisto et al., 2016).Predators have a huge effect on some chip colors compared to othercolors for instance, in predation stage 3, the number of greensurvivors is 2 while the number of black is 7.

Thereis a wide interaction between the predators and the chip colors thereason for this is that in the initial population, there was aconstant number, which was 10% that was differentiated after thefirst predation interaction (Koivisto et al., 2016). Therefore, it isclear that interaction between predators and the chip colors resultsin evolution stimulation. Thus, evolution stimulation is effectivewhen there is interaction in the environment.
