Several transitions to higher levels of biological organization have punctuated the history of life. These transitions occur when cooperative alliances lead to the integration of non-identical partners into more complex ...

In many social insects, workers are capable of producing males. Workers are more highly related to their own sons than to the sons of the queens, and so it is surprising that queens often monopolize male production even ...
Maternity and cyclical oligogyny in a colony of Parachartergus colobopterus
