The first Daisyworld model showed how simple interactions and varying growth rates of daisies could lead to a type of global homeostasis. This idea has been extended to include variable mortality rates as a form of natural selection. This paper shows that this extension can increase the temperature regulation and persistence of Daisyworid systems, even with higher overall mortality rates.
