Abstract

Goal: Elucidating the role of the eco-evolutionary feedback loop in determining evolutionarily stable life histories, with particular reference to the methodological status of the optimisation procedures of classical evolutionary ecology.

Conclusions: Even in cases where there happens to exist an optimisation principle, the evolutionary outcomes can be largely determined by other aspects of the population dynamical embedding. The existence of an optimisation principle is technically helpful, biologically very restrictive, and has in general no further biological relevance.
