Abstract:This project examined coevolutionary principles. In an experiment, yeast species were observed when places in a competitive environment. Phenomena characteristic of coevolution (eg: population changes) were noted. In addition, a model was developed in which coevolutionary principles were applied and tested. To facilitate the natural processes of mortality, a formula was developed. When statistically analyzed, the model's results were congruent with principles of Natural Selection.
