Evaluating kin and group selection theory as tools for analyzing microbial data [article]

jeff smith, R. Fredrik Inglis
2019 bioRxiv   pre-print
How to properly formulate social evolution theory has also been contentious. Here we evaluate kin and multilevel selection theory as tools for analyzing microbial data.  ...  We find that the canonical formulations of both kin and multilevel selection are almost always poor analytical tools because they use statistical regressions that are poorly specified for the strong selection  ...  Interpreted results and organized their presentation: js, RFI.
