Sex and social evolution
Project Year: 2007   
The evolution and maintenance of sexual reproduction is believed to involve important tradeoffs. Queens of social insects are in a dilemma over the cost and benefit of sexual and asexual reproduction. Asexual reproduction by a queen doubles her co...
The cuckoo fungus "termite ball" mimicking termite eggs: a novel insect-fungal association
Project Year: 2000   
Mimicry has evolved in a wide range of organisms encompassing diverse tactics for defense, foraging, pollination, and social parasitism. Here we report an extraordinary case of egg mimicry by a sclerotium-forming fungus, whereby the fungus gains c...
