EICA Fails As An Explanation Of Growth And Defence Evolution Following Multiple Introductions

van Boheemen, L.A., Bou-Assi, S., Uesugi, A., Hodgins, K.A. (2018). EICA Fails As An Explanation Of Growth And Defence Evolution Following Multiple Introductions. bioRxiv  doi.org/10.1101/435271 Rapid adaptation is aiding invasive populations in their competitive success. The evolution of increased competitive ability (EICA) hypothesis posits this enhanced performance results from escape from native enemies, yet its …
