The evolution of group traits: modelling natural selection on trait prevalence within and between groups

Calcraft, Paul Richard Thomas;
  • Subject: QH0324.2

One of evolution's greatest innovations was group living; indeed, it is fundamental to our daily lives as humans. Yet despite intense theoretical and empirical work, the details of how group living arose and is maintained are poorly understood. A central question in thi... View more
