Sustainable sex ratio in lattice populations
Department of Systems Engineering, Shizuoka University - Hamamatsu 432-8561 Japan
Accepted: 6 March 2006
We present a lattice model of mating populations. Simulation is performed by two different methods: local and global interactions. Simulation results account for the reason why the observed sex ratio is nearly one half in many animals. The male-biased sex ratio, such as in human populations, is also explained.
