Cooperation models are often idiosyncratic, and a recent objective has been to connect these models into a framework in which different forms of cooperation can be compared (Queller, 1985; Connor, 1995; Dugatkin, 1997; Frank, 2003; Sachs et al., 2004). Lehmann & Keller (2006) (hereafter ‘LK Brown, 1983; Connor, 1995; Sachs et al., 2004) and reciprocity (Trivers, 1971; Axelrod & Hamilton, 1981; Bull & Rice, 1991; Sachs et al., 2004) that parallel mutualism theory. By-products and reciprocity can… Expand
The evolution of cooperative breeding; is there cheating?
TLDR
A simpler, tripartite framework for the evolution of cooperation in vertebrates is reviewed and it is not immediately evident how these hypotheses relate to ne another or to general theories of cooperation. Expand
Synergy, partner choice and frequency dependence: their integration into inclusive fitness theory and their interpretation in terms of direct and indirect fitness effects
The aims of our Target Review (Lehmann & Keller, 2006) were to develop a simple model allowing us to delineate the conditions necessary for cooperation and altruism to evolve and argue that theExpand
The option to leave: conditional dissociation in the evolution of cooperation.
TLDR
It is found that conditional dissociation is the essential disciplinary device supporting cooperation, whilst other conditional strategies remain present only in small population shares. Expand
The evolution of cooperation in asymmetric systems
TLDR
This model and simulation show that the local but not the global stability of a cooperative interaction can be maintained if the utilization of common resource remains unsaturated, which can be achieved by density-dependent restraint or competition among the cooperative actors. Expand
Duality Of Stochasticity And Natural Selection Shape The Ecology-driven Pattern Of Social Interactions: The Fall Of Hamilton's Rule
TLDR
From microbes to mammals, cooperation is selected-for in harsh, uncertain and unpredictable environments, and the evolution of cooperation is a bet-hedging (risk spreading) strategy of risk-averse individuals in stochastic environments. Expand
Invited Review SPECIAL ISSUE: Using Ideas from Behavioural Ecology to Understand Plants
TLDR
This work synthesizes helping into four categories and uses Lehmann and Keller's (2006) classification scheme for animal helping and McIntire and Fajardo's (2014) synthesis of facilitation to provide starting points for classifying the mechanisms of how and why organisms help each other. Expand
The evolution of mutualism.
  • E. Leigh
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of evolutionary biology
  • 2010
TLDR
Both symbioses and brief-exchange mutualisms have transformed whole ecosystems and may be steps towards ecosystems which, like Adam Smith's ideal economy, serve their members' common good. Expand
Evolution and persistence of obligate mutualists and exploiters: competition for partners and evolutionary immunization.
TLDR
It is shown theoretically that asymmetrical competition for partners generally determines the evolutionary fate of obligate mutualisms facing exploitation by third-species invaders. Expand
The evolution of mutualism
Like altruism, mutualism, cooperation between species, evolves only by enhancing all participants’ inclusive fitness. Mutualism evolves most readily between members of different kingdoms, which poolExpand
From quorum to cooperation: lessons from bacterial sociality for evolutionary theory.
  • P. Lyon
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Studies in history and philosophy of biological and biomedical sciences
  • 2007
TLDR
Recent experiments are discussed that explore different facets of current theories of the evolution and maintenance of cooperation using bacterial models, raising interesting questions about the assumptions on which current understanding of cooperation and altruism rests. Expand

The evolution of cooperation and altruism – a general framework and a classification of models
TLDR
A synthetic conceptual framework is developed that delineates the conditions necessary for the evolution of altruism and cooperation and classifies them into four general categories. Expand
Biological markets: supply and demand determine the effect of partner choice in cooperation, mutualism and mating
TLDR
A formal model in which the influence of the market mechanism on selection is made explicit and a dominant role for partner choice is ensured in the formation of partnerships is presented. Expand
The evolution of interspecific mutualisms.
  • M. Doebeli, N. Knowlton
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
  • 1998
TLDR
For mutualism to evolve, increased investments in a partner must yield increased returns, and spatial structure in competitive interactions is required, and under these biologically plausible assumptions, mutualism evolves with surprising ease. Expand
Cooperation—A Biologist's Dilemma
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses on aid-giving or cooperation. It evaluates the role of indirect fitness in certain cases that seem favorable for it, and discusses the determinants ofExpand
Distinguishing mechanisms for the evolution of co-operation.
TLDR
This work has emphasized one type of model as underlying the evolution and stability of interspecific co-operation, which it term the "partner-fidelity" model, and which is typified by the game theory model known as the iterated Prisoner's Dilemma game. Expand
Assortment of encounters and evolution of cooperativeness.

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
  • 1982
TLDR
It can be shown that discrimination in the choice of companions, especially if combined with assortment, can favor the development of Cooperativeness, making initial increase of cooperative behavior possible even at levels of assortment passively imposed which would not be adequate, per se, to guarantee the increase of cooperativeness.

Kinship, reciprocity and synergism in the evolution of social behaviour
There are two ways to model the genetic evolution of social behaviour. Population genetic models using personal fitness1 –9 may be exact and of wide applicability, but they are often complex andExpand
The Benefits of Mutualism: A Conceptual Framework
TLDR
Using the conceptual framework presented here, including in particular by‐product benefits, it is shown how it is possible to construct more parsimonious alternatives to both models of mutualism. Expand
The genetical evolution of social behaviour. I.
  • W. Hamilton
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of theoretical biology
  • 1964
TLDR
A genetical mathematical model is described which allows for interactions between relatives on one another's fitness and a quantity is found which incorporates the maximizing property of Darwinian fitness, named “inclusive fitness”. Expand
The Evolution of Cooperation
Cooperation in organisms, whether bacteria or primates, has been a difficulty for evolutionary theory since Darwin. On the assumption that interactions between pairs of individuals occur on aExpand
