A SOCIAL ANIMAL RESEARCH PROJECT BASED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF EXETER
“Social evolution is one of the most exciting topics in biology. How does altruism evolve? How do self-interested individuals resolve conflicts? Why does inequality vary in animal societies? Our research tackles these and other questions, through theory and field research on animals ranging from insects to humans.”
The Socialis project is directed by Professor Michael Cant, a Professor of Evolutionary Biology at the University of Exeter. He collaborates with teams of specialist biologists based all over the world.
