Kin and levels‐of‐selection models are common approaches for modelling social evolution. Indirect genetic effect (IGE) models represent a different approach, specifying social effects on trait values rather than fitness. We investigate the joint effect of relatedness, multilevel selection and IGEs on response to selection. We present a measure for the degree of multilevel selection, which is the natural partner of relatedness in expressions for response. Response depends on both relatedness and… Expand
Social Selection and Indirect Genetic Effects in Structured populations
TLDR
It is shown that the two mechanisms can yield similar evolutionary outcomes and that both can create selection pressure at the group level, and that the effect of IGEs can be stronger due to the possibility of feedback loops, but not social selection gradients. Expand
The quantitative genetics of indirect genetic effects: a selective review of modelling issues
TLDR
This work is a selective review of the quantitative genetics of traits affected by I GEs, with a focus on modelling, estimation and interpretation issues, and a discussion on the relevance of IGEs for response to selection in cases where the strength of interaction varies among pairs of individuals. Expand
INTERACTING PHENOTYPES AND THE EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS. III. SOCIAL EVOLUTION
TLDR
A quantitative genetic model of multivariate trait evolution that integrates the effects of both IGEs and social selection and provides a general predictive equation for the evolution of social phenotypes that encompasses specific cases such as kin selection and reciprocity is presented. Expand
Indirect genetic effects and the evolution of cooperation
TLDR
A new quantitative genetics approach to the study of the evolution of social behaviours based on indirect genetic effects (IGEs), which parameters can be readily determined by empirical studies, and which can be translated to and are fully compatible with traditional kin and multilevel selection models. Expand
Group selection and social evolution in domesticated animals
TLDR
The quantitative genetic perspective allows us to see how breeders have used knowledge from relatives and family selection in the domestication of plants and animals to improve the welfare and production of livestock by incorporating social genetic effects in the breeding program. Expand
Indirect genetic effects and the evolution of aggression in a vertebrate system
TLDR
Using quantitative genetic models of five aggression traits, repeatable and heritable differences in agonistic behaviours of focal individuals when presented with an opponent mouse are found, illustrating how classical analyses may miss important components of heritable variation. Expand
Indirect genetic effects and kin recognition: estimating IGEs when interactions differ between kin and strangers
TLDR
It is shown that the full set of genetic parameters is not identifiable when IGEs differ between kin and strangers, and a reduced model is presented that yields estimates of thetotal heritable effects on kin, on non-kin and on all social partners of an individual, as well as the total heritable variance for response to selection.

How to Measure Indirect Genetic Effects: The Congruence of Trait-Based and Variance-Partitioning Approaches
TLDR
A generalized method that can be used to estimate &PSgr; via standard quantitative genetic breeding designs or pedigrees from natural populations, including maternal effects and other interactions among relatives is shown. Expand
Phenotypic and Evolutionary Consequences of Social Behaviours: Interactions among Individuals Affect Direct Genetic Effects
TLDR
It is demonstrated that social interactions may not only cause indirect genetic effects but can also modify direct genetic effects, which may lead to scenarios where between group variation is much higher than within group variation despite similar underlying genetic properties, potentially affecting the level of selection. Expand
Interpreting selection when individuals interact
TLDR
It is shown that evolution always increases inclusive fitness, and when the traits are measured in units of generalised genetic distance evolutionary change in the traits is in the direction in which inclusive fitness increases the fastest. Expand

On Indirect Genetic Effects in Structured Populations
TLDR
It is found that nonlinear social effects can cause interference between levels of selection even when they act in the same direction, confirming empirical data that show higher levels of Selection cannot be ignored even when selection acts in theSame direction at all levels. Expand

Interactions among individuals are universal, both in animals and in plants and in natural as well as domestic populations. Understanding the consequences of these interactions for the evolution ofExpand
Multilevel Selection 1: Quantitative Genetics of Inheritance and Response to Selection
TLDR
Results show that interaction among individuals may create substantial heritable variation, which is hidden to classical analyses, and provides testable predictions of response to multilevel selection and reduces to classical theory in the absence of interaction. Expand
INTERACTING PHENOTYPES AND THE EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS: I. DIRECT AND INDIRECT GENETIC EFFECTS OF SOCIAL INTERACTIONS
TLDR
This work adopts a quantitative genetic approach to assess genetic influences on interacting phenotypes and partition genetic and environmental effects so that traits in conspecifics that influence the expression of interacting phenotype are a component of the environment. Expand
The Relation between Multilocus Population Genetics and Social Evolution Theory
TLDR
It is shown that the multilocus methodology is conceptually analogous to social evolutionary methodology, which focuses on selection acting on associated individuals, and that this methodology helps solve problems of dynamic sufficiency in social evolution theory. Expand

TLDR
A model of social selection acting on interacting phenotype that can be evaluated independently from the genetics of interacting phenotypes is presented, analogous to covariance models of other forms of selection. Expand

TLDR
The evolution of altruism through kin selection is a special case of a more general model of the evolution of traits which are affected by and affect the phenotypes of relatives, which highlights previously unrecognized or underrated features of the models cited above. Expand

This paper quantifies the contribution of genetically based environmental effects arising from social interactions during group rearing to the quantitative genetics of body size in Drosophila melanogaster and shows that these effects significantly alter evolutionary predictions by providing hidden constraints on phenotypic evolution.
