This paper is concerned with the discrete dynamics of an integro-differential model that describes the evolution of a population structured with respect to a continuous trait. Various time-asymptotic convergence rates towards the discrete evolutionary stable distribution (ESD) are established. For some special ESD satisfying a strict sign condition, the exponential convergence rates are obtained for both semi-discrete and fully discrete schemes. Towards the general ESD, the algebraic convergence rate that we find is consistent with the known result for the continuous model.
