Mathematical models play a fundamental role in theoretical population genetics and, in turn, population genetics provides a wealth of mathematical challenges. In this lecture we illustrate this by using a mathematical caricature of the evolution of genetic types in a spatially distributed population to demonstrate the role that the shape of the domain inhabited by a species can play in mediating the interplay between natural selection, spatial structure, and (if time permits) so-called random genetic drift (the randomness due to reproduction in a finite population).
