Resource Constraints | Selective Outcome |
---|---|

(I) Limited resources | Ox Phos [(almost always) = (a.s.)] |

Constant distribution | |

(II) Abundant resources | |

Variable Distribution | Glycolysis (a.s.) |

(III) Limited Resources | |

Variable distribution: | |

Large population size | Ox Phos (a.s.) |

Small population size | Ox Phos (with probability that increases with population size) |

(IV) Abundant resources | |

Constant distribution | |

Large population size | Glycolysis (a.s.) |

Small population size | Glycolysis (with probability that increases with population size) |
