Haplodiploidy and the evolution of eusociality : split sex ratios (vol 179, pg 240, 2012)
(2012-04) - Journal article,
Sex and death : the effects of innate immune factors on the sexual reproduction of malaria parasites
(2011-03) - Journal article,
Malaria parasites must undergo a round of sexual reproduction in the blood meal of a mosquito vector to be transmitted between hosts. Developing a transmission-blocking intervention to prevent parasites from mating is a ...
Evolution of Helping and Harming in Viscous Populations When Group Size Varies
(2013) - Journal article,
Recent years have seen huge interest in understanding how demographic factors mediate the evolution of social behavior in viscous populations. Here we study the impact of variation in group size on the evolution of helping ...
(2015-08) - Journal item,
The first American Naturalist appeared in March 1867. In a countdown to the 150th anniversary, the editors have solicited short commentaries on articles from the past that deserve a second look.
Intragenomic conflict over soldier allocation in polyembryonic parasitoid wasps
(2016-02-18) - Journal article,
Understanding the selection pressures that have driven the evolution of sterile insect castes has been the focus of decades of intense scientific debate. An amenable empirical testbed for theory on this topic is provided ...
The constant philopater hypothesis : a new life history invariant for dispersal evolution
(2016-01) - Journal article,
Surprising invariance relationships have emerged from the study of social interaction, whereby a cancelling-out of multiple partial effects of genetic, ecological or demographic parameters means that they have no net impact ...
Spite and the scale of competition in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
(2011-08) - Journal article,
Scale of competition has been shown to be an important factor in shaping the evolution of social interactions. Although many theoretical and experimental studies have examined its effect on altruistic cooperation, relatively ...
Is bacterial persistence a social trait?
(2007-08) - Journal article,
The ability of bacteria to evolve resistance to antibiotics has been much reported in recent years. It is less well-known that within populations of bacteria there are cells which are resistant due to a non-inherited ...
Haplodiploidy and the evolution of eusociality : worker revolution
(2014-09) - Journal article,
Hamilton suggested that inflated relatedness between sisters promotes the evolution of eusociality in haplodiploid populations. Trivers and Hare observed that for this to occur, workers have to direct helping preferentially ...
Misconceptions on the application of biological market theory to the mycorrhizal symbiosis
