Resilience in a semelparous Penna model
We consider the effect of a harsher environment on Penna populations with different genetic diversities. A change in the environment, in the form of an epidemic, is simulated by a lowering of the mutation threshold. Our results suggest that populations with greater genetic diversity have a greater probability of survival during an epidemic.
