When an organism performs a task, the organism’s merit is multiplied by the task’s bonus value. For example, if an organism performs a task with a bonus value of 2, its merit is doubled. An Avida population comprises a number of cells in which at most one organism can live. Thus, the size of an Avida population is bounded by the number of cells in the environment. The cells are divided into a set of distinct subpopulations, called demes. In this study, demes compete every 100 updates in a tournament based on their fitness function, where a deme’s fitness is determined by the behavior of its constituent organisms.

We choose a very simple representation of the local environmental context – a binary vector representing which species are present in non-zero frequency. We suppose that each position in the vector is a ‘niche’ that may be occupied by one of two possible species that are mutually exclusive, such that some species cannot coexist in the same ecological context. , and vice versa. A. Watson et al. thus indicates which N species, of the possible 2N, are present in the environmental context. g. g. 6th).
