SPLIT SEX-RATIOS AND THE EVOLUTIONARY ORIGINS OF EUSOCIALITY

Abstract:

The influence of the genetic system of haplodiploidy on the evolution of eusociality has been a central topic in evolutionary biology since it was first discussed by Hamilton (1964) in the context of his invention of inclusive fitness theory. Since then, work on that influence had outstripped the development of inclusive fitness theory itself. Recently, Taylor (1986) has provided a deeper understanding of inclusive fitness theory that allows us to use it to derive a quite general expression f...
