  • Bergstrom, Carl T.; Godfrey-Smith, Peter (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1998)
    A wide range of ecological and evolutionary models predict variety in phenotype or behavior when a population is at equilibrium. This heterogeneity can be realized in different ways. For example, it can be realized through ...
  • Lipsitch, Marc; Bergstrom, Carl T. (American Journal of Epidemiology, 2004)
    Health officials faced a daunting task with the emergence of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) last year: forecasting the trajectory of an emerging infectious disease and implementing effective control measures, ...
  • Bergstrom, Carl T.; Lachmann, Michael (National Academy of Sciences USA, 2003-01-21)
    Mutualisms provide benefits to those who participate in them. As a mutualism evolves, how will these benefits come to be allocated among the participants? We approach this question using evolutionary game theory and explore ...
  • Robson, Arthur J.; Bergstrom, Carl T.; Pritchard, Jonathan K. (Academic Press LTD Elsevier Scientific LTD, 1999)
    Patterns of reproductive uncertainty can have an important influence on population dynamics. There is a crucial distinction between what we describe here as aggregate uncertainty (in which reproductive output in each ...
  • Antia, Rustom; Regoes, Roland R.; Koella, Jacob C.; Bergstrom, Carl T. (Nature, 2003)
    It is unclear when, where and how novel pathogens such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), monkeypox and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) will cross the barriers that separate their natural reservoirs from human ...
  • Bergstrom, Carl T.; Szamado, Szabolcs; Lachmann, Michael (The Royal Society of London, 2002-10-24)
    Much of the theoretical literature on costly signalling concentrates on the separating equilibria of continuous signalling games. At such equilibria, every signaller sends a distinct signal, and signal receivers are able ...
  • Bergstrom, Carl T.; Lachmann, Michael (National Academy of Sciences, 1998-04)
    The Sir Philip Sidney game has been used by numerous authors to show how signal cost can facilitate honest signaling among relatives. Here, we demonstrate that, in this game, honest cost-free signals are possible as well, ...
  • Bergstrom, Carl T.; Real, Leslie A. (Evolutionary Ecology LTD, 2000)
    Theoretical models of mate choice and sexual selection typically make one of two simplifying assumptions. Either mate-preferences are assumed to be uniform (e.g., all females have the same preferences with respect to males), ...
  • Bergstrom, Carl T.; McElhany, Paul; Real, Leslie A. (National Academy of the Sciences, 1999-04)
    Transmission bottlenecks occur in pathogen populations when only a few individual pathogens are transmitted from one infected host to another in the initiation of a new infection. Transmission bottlenecks can dramatically ...
  • Ganusov, Vitaly V.; Bergstrom, Carl T.; Antia, Rustom (Society for the Study of Evolution, 2002-02)
    Why do parasites harm their hosts? The general understanding is that if the transmission rate and virulence of a parasite are linked, then the parasite must harm its host in order to maximize its transmission. The exact ...
