Abstract

The evolution of cooperation has been a focus of interest for evolutionary biologists for over a hundred years (Darwin 1859; Kropotkin 1908; Williams 1966). While all forms of cooperation challenge the centrality of competition in the process of evolution, cooperative and eusocial breeding systems, where offspring produced by a small number of breeding individuals are reared by nonbreeding helpers or workers, raise some of the most fundamental questions about the level at which selection operates the measurement of....

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
