It is increasingly recognised that population thinking is a basic characteristic of evolutionary economics. The most basic form is population thinking for single populations, and this thinking easily extends to structured populations, where selection takes place at several levels. But there is also a need of applying population thinking to the co-evolution of populations and to the emergence of new populations. To transform these forms of population thinking into evolutionary analyses, there is a need of simple analytical tools. This website especielly emphasises a simple and basic tool for population analysis: Price's equation.
