Model of minority cytotype exclusion in polyploidy.

When there is a population with mixed ploidy, inter-ploidy cross can create infertile offspring. This create a competition between ploidy levels. Implement a stochastic model simulating this process, and analyze the outcome. For examples, you can analyze how the initial frequencies influence the final outcome, how time till exclusion by one ploidy is influenced by different parameter values, whether coexistence of two ploidy levels can be possible under certain parameter combinations. Or you can start from a diploid population and introduce a tetraploid individual, and see when the tetraploid individual can invade into the population.
