The coevolution of cooperation and dispersal in social groups and its implications for the emergence of multicellularity

BMC Evolutionary Biology

Aug 21, 2008

Michael E HochbergMichael Taborsky

Abstract

Recent work on the complexity of life highlights the roles played by evolutionary forces at different levels of individuality. One of the central puzzles in explaining transitions in individuality for entities ranging from complex cells, to multicellular organisms and societies, is how ...read more
