Evolutionary game theory applies the models and methods of game theory to evolutionary dynamics of animal populations. Because animals cannot be considered rational actors, the games are used to evaluate different strategies in terms of evolutionary (i.e., reproductive) success within a population. The game below is an adaptation of a classic hawk-dove game described by the biologist John Maynard Smith.
