A carbohydrate-rich diet increases social immunity in ants

Proceedings. Biological Sciences

Adam D KayMichael Kaspari

Abstract

Increased potential for disease transmission among nest-mates means living in groups has inherent costs. This increased potential is predicted to select for disease resistance mechanisms that are enhanced by cooperative exchanges among group members, a phenomenon known as social immunit...read more
