Explores the genetic and behavioral basis of kin recognition in social animals. This topic has wide-ranging and fundamental implications for evolutionary and behavioral biologists, since kin selection tends to favor the general survival of a group rather than its individual members, thus contradicting such basic concepts as natural selection based on survival of the fittest individuals. Provides an overview of the field in the form of an edited collection of review papers written by experts on the subject which reflects the indisciplinary nature of the field. .
