Correlations between predictors on different landscapes.
We highlight the relationships among ΔVarHD, ΔVaradd, and ΔMeanfit on smooth, random, and NK2 landscapes, in simulations with infinite population size. Each cross mark (+) represents a predictor value for a single simulation. Red (blue) crosses indicate simulations in which the frequency of sexually reproducing individuals increased (decreased) in the competition phase. For clarity of presentation, up to 5 outlier points were eliminated from random and NK2 landscapes. These outliers in predictor values are typically characteristic of a small number of populations that did not reach the equilibrium genotype frequencies by the end of the burn-in phase.
