In the study of the evolution of social behavior, it is of interest to isolate the features which are important in progressing from the primitive (solitary) to an advanced (highly eusocial) state. Individual attributes may evolve independently so that any species has a mixture of primitive and derived characteristics. Some characters, however, will almost always evolve together; evidently in the development of social behavior they must co-evolve. The purpose of this paper is to examine, for… Expand
