Title A reappraisal of grandmothering and natural selection
Date 2011-01-01
Description Kachel et al. [1] conclude from simulations of their agent-based model that fitness benefits from helpful grandmothers do not select for increased longevity. We studied their assumptions and model, ran further simulations and found flaws that are fatal to their test. Here, we explain four problems and show their consequences.
