Behavioural and molecular evidence for selective immigration and group regulation in the social huntsman spider, Delena cancerides
Movement among social groups interacts with the costs and benefits of group-living in complex ways. Unlike most other social spiders, the social huntsman spider, Delena cancerides, appears to enter foreign colonies, discriminates kin from non-kin, and has very limited dispersal options because their bark retreats are rare, making this species an interesting model organism with which to examine the role of inter-colony movement on group-living. We examined movement among field colonies of D....[Show more]
