Ultrasociality and the sexual divisions of labor

Pamela Lyon, Linnda Caporael

    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


    The ultrasociality thesis proposes that the same “mechanistic evolutionary forces” may be at work in the evolution of insect eusociality and human ultrasociality in relation to agriculture. Wide variation in the reproductive division of labor among differing highly social phyla points to a resemblance of outcomes arising from very different selective environments and possibly different forces.
