The Effect of Competition Among Resources on Phenotypic Evolution of Consumers
The pattern of competition among consumers
is one of the important factors that
determine if a population of the consumers
diverges or remains monomophic.
Despite its importance,
what factors can affect the pattern
has not been investigated.
One of such factors is
the shape of resource distribution.
Here I investigate the effect of
competition among resources.
Because the competition among resources
alter the resource distribution,
the evolutionary dynamics of the consumers
is also affected.
