Increasing growth rate slows adaptation when genotypes compete for diffusing resources

Fig 3

Increasing competition localization increases genetic drift.

A) Experimental design for the simulations. B) The variation in frequency of the physiologically-identical genotypes, as a function of ζ. The points are means, averaged across replicates, of the standard deviation of the final genotype frequency. These means were normalized by dividing by the maximum standard deviation. The error bars are standard error. The horizontal error bars are standard error of the mean of ζ, due to different founder locations causing different (see Materials and Methods).
