The Implausible Engines of Evolution

... for example), there are finches of different bill lengths in the population, just like there are humans of different height - pretty much in a Gaussian way. Now, if on one island most of the finches' food would require a long bill to reach to, the long-billed ones would do well, mate with one ...

calculation of distance using Kullback–Leibler divergence

... x - axis and also on y- axis values) which results in displaying how good these two plots fit. I thought of using Kullback–Leibler divergence for Gaussian. Here what I intended to do is to draw a gaussian curve for each point (1st value of plot 1 and 1st value of plot 2) individually in the two ...

Question about evolution in progress

... can their regulatory sequences. Each different allele will have some extent an effect on the final product. Complex system will likely result in a Gaussian distribution of the phenotype observed. If the character gives an advantage the individuals on one side of the distribution will have a reproductive ...

Other (sex-related) genes then make men to grow taller than women, on average, which would be the case also in this hypothetical ...
