Crozier's paradox revisited: maintenance of genetic recognition systems by disassortative mating

Holman, Luke; van Zweden, Jelle S.; Linksvayer, Timothy A.; d'Ettorre, Patrizia


BACKGROUND: Organisms are predicted to behave more favourably towards relatives, and kin-biased cooperation has been found in all domains of life from bacteria to vertebrates. Cooperation based on genetic recognition cues is paradoxical because it disproportionately benefits individuals with common phenotypes, which should erode the required cue polymorphism. Theoretical models suggest that many recognition loci likely have some secondary function that is subject to...[Show more]
