In this expository talk, I’ll use 1d voter models to illustrate basic features of neutral theory—a vision of how genetic and ecological diversity can emerge even without selective pressure. We’ll see how questions about the persistence and spatial organization of lineages can be rephrased, in these models, as questions about random walks.
