A Mathematical Model of Evolutionary Pressures Regulating Self-Preservation and Self-Destruction.
de Catanzaro, Denys
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v16 n2 p166-81 Sum 1986
Focuses upon self-preservation, as it pervades the general patterns of behavior of all organisms, over the totality of biological evolution. Asserts that self-preservation has definable limitations that can be modeled mathematically. Suggests natural selection does not invariably favor tendencies toward self-preservation. Argues that reproduction is the governing force in biological evolution. (Author/ABB)
