LindEvol: Artificial Models for Natural Plant Evolution

J. T. Kim

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


LindEvol is a family of computer simulation programs modelling the evolution of plants. Several mechanisms that shape plant evolution are integrated in LindEvol models. LindEvol models have been used to investigate evolution of structured taxonomic diversity. The concept of linking mutation rate modification to an energy cost was used as a starting point for developing a method for avoiding premature convergence in evolutionary algorithms. Finally, LindEvol has been used for a comparative analysis and characterization of methods for measuring biodiversity.
