Article reads: By replaying evolution over and over with the clones, the researchers showed that the eventual winners likely prevailed because they had greater potential for further adaptation. “In essence, the eventual loser lineage seems to have made a mutational move that gave it a short-term fitness advantage but closed off certain routes for later improvement,” Lenski says. “And the dead-end strategy allowed the eventual winners to catch up and eventually surpass the eventual losers.”
