From the Ewert, Dembski, and Marks paper on Avida:

If the fitness of the organism
does not decrease, we keep the mutation and repeat the
iteration. If the fitness does increase, the mutation is
discarded and the process repeated.


What is this, the almost completely neutral evolution strategy?

It's the middle of the night, and maybe my eyes just are too glazed over, but can anybody else see why all the R strategy values for successes in Table III are the same, 353?
