So voting has closed, and the paper chosen was the PNAS paper by Peter Nonacs on “Kinship, greenbeards, and runaway social selection in the evolution of social insect cooperation“. It’s a pretty theoretical and conceptual paper, so it should make it for a fun discussion! As usual, if you can’t access it, just let me know and I’ll send it to you.
Another important thing is, as you can see, 20 people voted. Assuming all voters are people interested in discussing the paper, we’ll need to be pretty conscientious about rotation and letting everyone join in – unless you have alternative suggestions, if so add them below in the comments.
We will be meeting next Tuesday at 5PM EDT! See you then!
