  • The theory of parent-offspring conflict (POC) provides a plausible evolutionary foundation for the dissonant behavioral interactions commonly observed between adults and their progeny. It has been modelled extensively, but its predictions for phenotypes are murky and have been subjected to scant empirical testing. The least ambiguous cases are likely to involve taxa where offspring exert real power. Recent experimental work indicates that worker bees manipulate brood sex ratios differently from… CONTINUE READING
