Evolution at multiple gene positions is complicated. Direct selection on one gene disturbs the evolutionary dynamics of associated genes. Recent years have seen the development of a multilocus methodology for modeling evolution at arbitrary numbers of gene positions with arbitrary dominance and epistatic relations, mode of inheritance, genetic linkage, and recombination. We show that the approach is conceptually analogous to social evolutionary methodology, which focuses on selection acting on… Expand
Social evolution and genetic interactions in the short and long term.
The evolution of social traits remains one of the most fascinating and feisty topics in evolutionary biology even after half a century of theoretical research. W.D. Hamilton shaped much of the fieldExpand
Social evolution and genetic interactions in the short and long term
TLDR
This work shows how Hamilton’s rule emerges from the short-term analysis under additivity and how non-additive genetic interactions can be accounted for more generally and illustrates how trait evolution can be described with a diffusion equation that is a stochastic analogue of the canonical equation of adaptive dynamics. Expand
Social evolution and genetic interactions in the short and long term.
TLDR
It is shown how Hamilton's rule emerges from the short-term analysis under additivity and how non-additive genetic interactions can be accounted for more generally and how current analytical approaches can expand the understanding of social evolution far beyond Hamilton's original work. Expand

Multilocus models in the infinite island model of population structure.
TLDR
This paper presents a method to construct multilocus models in the infinite island model of population structure (where deme size may be arbitrarily small), and shows that quasi-equilibrium calculations for associations that are different from zero under neutrality must include a term that has not been previously considered.

The genetical theory of social behaviour
  • L. Lehmann, F. Rousset
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences
  • 2014
TLDR
The population genetic basis of social evolution is surveyed, using a logically consistent set of arguments to cover a wide range of biological scenarios and clarify some persistent divergences within social evolution theory, with respect to exactness, synergies, maximization, dynamic sufficiency and the role of genetic arguments. Expand
The genetical theory of kin selection
TLDR
Fisher's genetical paradigm is used to demonstrate the generality of Hamilton’s rule and to clarify links between different studies, and to emphasize the need to distinguish between general kin‐selection theory that forms the foundations of social evolution, and streamlined kin-selection methodology that isused to solve specific problems.

The Quantitative Genetic Theory of Parental Effects
There are many theoretical approaches for studying the evolution of parental care and parent–offspring interactions (Chapters 2, 7, 9, and 16; Mock and Parker 1997), but here I focus on theoryExpand
Cultural Transmission Can Inhibit the Evolution of Altruistic Helping
TLDR
Two simple models for the evolution of helping through cultural group selection are developed: one in which selection on the trait depends solely on Darwinian fitness effects and one which selection is driven by nonreproductive factors, specifically imitation of strategies achieving higher payoffs. Expand
Ant Species Differences Determined by Epistasis between Brood and Worker Genomes
TLDR
Using a full-factorial cross-fostering design with three species of closely related Temnothorax ants, it is found that adult worker size was determined by an interaction between the genotypes of developing brood and care-giving workers, i.e. intergenomic epistasis. Expand

The evolution of multilocus systems under weak selection.
TLDR
The evolution of multilocus systems under weak selection is investigated and the absolute error in the fundamental and secondary theorems of natural selection is small, though the relative error may be large. Expand
Adaptive landscapes, genetic distance and the evolution of quantitative characters.
TLDR
The Gaussian-based prediction that evolution of the phenotypic mean does not change the genetic variance is shown to be a consequence of the assumption that the allelic distributions are never skewed and the parameter values consistent with this assumption are presented. Expand
Genetics of mutualism: the evolution of altruism between species.
  • S. Frank
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Journal of theoretical biology
  • 1994
TLDR
The model shows that the spread of altruism is enhanced by spatial correlations between species in the genetic tendency to give aid to partners, and shows that natural selection and ecological dynamics can create genetic correlations between neighbors of different species, even when the initial spatial distributions of the species are uncorrelated.

Natural and sexual selection on many loci.
TLDR
The general results support the previous observation that these indirect selection forces are so weak that they are unlikely to dominate the evolution of preference-producing loci. Expand
Levels of Selection in Evolution
TLDR
Levels of Selection in Evolution is the first book to provide an overview of the very diverse recent literature on these topics, which ultimately traces back to Haldane's nor Lewis' work, and will undoubtedly be a very useful resource for researchers in evolutionary biology. Expand
General models of multilocus evolution.
TLDR
The framework for recursions to describe the evolution of multilocus systems under arbitrary forms of selection is extended to allow for arbitrary modes of inheritance, including diploidy, polyploidsy, sex linkage, cytoplasmic inheritance, and genomic imprinting. Expand

TLDR
A new theory, known as the theory of long-term evolution, attempts to reconcile the rigorous population genetics approach with the long-standing sociobiological view that natural selection acts to increase the fitness of organisms. Expand
Inbreeding Depression and the Evolution of Dispersal Rates: A Multilocus Model
TLDR
This model disentangles two effects of inbreeding depression: it gives an advantage to migrant individuals because their offspring are on average less homozygous, but it also decreases the degree of population structure, thus decreasing the strength of kin selection for dispersal. Expand

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
How to Make a Kin Selection Model
Kin selection arguments, based on Hamilton’s (1964) concept of inclusive fitness, provide a powerful heuristic and can therefore give us valuable insights into the different pathways through whichExpand
