Definition: Evolution is the process of change in the gene pool.
Question: What are the major forces of evolution?
Answer: There are four major forces:
- Natural selection

Our goal is to develop models of individual forces and explore them to develop expectations of evolutionary behavior.
Let's follow the ODD protocol, even though it was designed for agent-based models.
Purpose: To understand the effects of
natural selectionin the absence of all other evolutionary forces.
