Generally, resources and hazards are not distributed uniformly. Thus, environmental interactions are a major factor in determining the success of a new mutant in structured populations. Spatial variations of concentration of resources change the fitness of competing strategies locally and thus can drastically change the outcome of evolutionary process in unintuitive ways. I discuss fixation probability and fixation time for a Moran birth-death process as the fitness heterogeneity and its pattern vary.
