UC doctoral student presents research at international conference
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Clement Loo, a University of Cincinnati doctoral student in the philosophy program, was one of the featured researchers at the biennial meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association Nov. 4-6 in Montreal, Quebec. The association promotes research, teaching and free discussion of issues in the philosophy of science.

Loo presented research themed around a Nov. 4 session on biology, evolution and selection. His paper was titled, "Invasive Species and Evaluating the Relative Significance of the Shifting Balance Theory."

The paper focused on the R.A. Fisher and Sewall Wright debate on evolutionary theory, arguing in favor of adopting Wright's Shifting Balance Theory over Fisher's theory of selection in exploring how invasive species thrive and overtake native, established populations...

How do populations go from one genotype to another genotype if the intermediate phenotypes have lower fitness? The evolutionary forces that explain this make up the shifting balance theory.
