Schematic representation of the coding of the behaviour of individuals. Each individual has seven genes: the first gene represents the state of the individual (weak or strong), the next three and the last three encodes the behaviour of the individual depending on whether the state of the individual is weak or strong respectively. Out of these three genes the first gene gives which signal to use; the second gene encodes which behaviour to use as a response to signal A; and finally, the last gene encodes which behaviour to use as a response to signal B. W: weak; S: strong; F: Flee; CA: Conditional Attack; At: Attack. Asterisks denote silent regions which do not influence the behaviour of the given individual. The “genom” of an individual playing the Honest Strong strategy is at the bottom as an example
