Eusociality evolved repeatedly in different orders of animals, particularly the . If a queen is lifetime-strictly monogamous – in other words, she mates with only one individual during her entire life – her progeny will be. Focusing on lifetime monogamy as a universal precondition for the evolution of obligate eusociality simplifies the theory and may help to resolve controversies.

Charles Darwin 51 Estimated H-index: In species where philopatry predominates, and there are few emigrants to the nest, intense inbreeding can occur, as is the case in eusocial species. This could be a precursor, or pre-condition for why eusociality evolved in termites. Warrington 4 Estimated H-index: The evolutionary origin and elaboration of sociality in the aculeate Hymenoptera: These requirements make it a necessity to have high social oof for the survival of the group.
Evolution of reproductive traits in Cataglyphis desert ants: However, many Hymenoptera have a form of lifetime monogamy in uesociality the queen mates with a single male, who then dies before colony founding. In many monogamous animals, an individual’s death prompts thr partner to look for a new mate, which would affect relatedness and hinder the evolution of eusociality: Yves Roisin 25 Estimated H-index: RatnieksKevin R. Female Choice in Social Insects.
Seeley 54 Estimated H-index: Genetic constraints may have influenced the evolution of eusociality. Are you looking for What’s wrong with inclusive fitness? Analysis has shown that in Hymenoptera, the ancestral female was monogamous in each of the eight independent cases where eusociality evolved.
Judith Korb 1 Estimated H-index: The final category, reproductive altruism, is the most divergent from other social orders. HughesBenjamin P. Haplodiploidy and Kin selection.
Evolution of eusociality
Lifetime monogamy and the evolution of eusociality. Origins of cooperative brood care, overlapping generations within a colony of adults, and a division of labor into reproductive and non-reproductive groups. Canalisation Evolutionary developmental biology Inversion Modularity Phenotypic plasticity.
Kin selection versus sexual selection: Journal of Evolutionary Biology. Jane Brockmann 1 Estimated H-index: Focusing on lifetime monogamy as a eusociailty precondition for the evolution of obligate eusociality simplifies the theory and may help to resolve controversies about levels of selection and targets of adaptation.
Hunt 22 Estimated H-index: Lifetime monogamy and the evolution of eusociality.
Focusing on lifetime monogamy as a universal precondition for the evolution of obligate eusociality simplifies the theory and may help to resolve controversies about levels of selection and targets of adaptation. Isoptera Search for additional papers on this topic.
Eusociality evolved repeatedly in different orders of animalsparticularly the Hymenoptera the waspsbeesand ants. With each molt, termites lose the lining of their hindgut and the subsequent bacteria and protozoa that colonize their guts for cellulose digestion.
Promiscuity and the evolutionary transition to complex societies nature [IF: Current theories propose that the evolution of eusociality occurred either due to kin selection oifetime, proposed by W.
Hamilton or by the competing theory of multilevel selection as proposed by E. Thorne Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology Ancestral monogamy shows kin selection is key to the evolution of eusociality. Relatedness predicts multiple measures of investment in cooperative nest construction in sociable weavers. This is when most members of the group eusciality up their own breeding opportunities in order to participate in the reproductive success of other individuals.
All evidence currently available indicates that obligatory sterile eusocial castes only arose via the association of lifetime annd parents and offspring.
