4 Biological Foundations of Distributed Models

Several distributed models from the previous survey were motivated by the theory of punctuated equilibria [Eldredge and Gould, 1972] and the adaptive landscape and shifting balance theory [Wright, 1931,Wright, 1932]. This work is examined next to provide a more thorough understanding of these models.
