Evolutionary consequences of indirect genetic effects.
Indirect genetic effects (IGEs) are environmental influences on the phenotype of one individual that are due to the expression of genes in a different, conspecific, individual. Historically, work hasExpand

Interacting phenotypes are traits whose expression is affected by interactions with conspecifics. Commonly‐studied interacting phenotypes include aggression, courtship, and communication. MoreExpand

Interacting Phenotypes and the Evolutionary Process. II. Selection Resulting from Social Interactions
Social interactions often affect the fitness of interactants. Because of this, social selection has been described as a process distinct from other forms of natural selection. Social selection hasExpand

Male–male competition, female mate choice and their interaction: determining total sexual selection
Empirical studies of sexual selection typically focus on one of the two mechanisms of sexual selection without integrating these into a description of total sexual selection, or study total sexualExpand

Partial begging: an empirical model for the early evolution of offspring signalling
Species where, from birth, the offspring feed themselves in addition to begging for food from the parents can be described as ‘partially begging’. Such species provide a unique opportunity to examineExpand

Evolution of DNA Methylation across Insects
DNA methylation contributes to gene and transcriptional regulation in eukaryotes, and therefore has been hypothesized to facilitate the evolution of plastic traits such as sociality in insects.Expand

Inclusive fitness theory and eusociality
Arising from M. A. Nowak, C. E. Tarnita & E. O. Wilson 466, 1057–1062 (2010)10.1038/nature09205; Nowak et al. replyNowak et al. argue that inclusive fitness theory has been of little value inExpand

Females are expected to have different mating preferences because of the variation in costs and benefits of mate choice both between females and within individual females over a lifetime. WorkersExpand

Selection, Inheritance, and the Evolution of Parent‐Offspring Interactions
Very few studies have examined parent‐offspring interactions from a quantitative genetic perspective. We used a cross‐fostering design and measured genetic correlations and components of socialExpand
