Interestingly, many evolutionary biology-related papers use p-calculus for their models. It's a shame most of them are typical science papers (they're written to seem complex and deep instead of trying to give a clear explanation of the model).

That's true. I think what happens is that researchers sometimes believe they need enough material for their papers to be published. For instance, they prove mathematical properties of their models which obfuscate the message and aren't necessarily relevant.

Also the target audience are other specialists in the same narrow field.
