By Wilson, David Sloan Wilson, Edward O The process known as group selection was once accepted unthinkingly, then was widely discredited; it's time for a more discriminating assessment Is evolution a team sport, or is the contest for survival played out strictly between individuals? There's no question that natural selection acts on individual organisms: Those with favorable traits are more likely to pass along their genes to the next generation.
Even in the wild, this rodent is associated with humans by destroying crops and stored food. The house mouse is also known as the fancy mouse, a common pet. It is also a widely used laboratory animal, important for testing in genetics, biology, and medicine. There are three recognized subspecies of the house mouse. These mice thrive in a number of locations including fields, houses, and commercial structures. An adult male house mouse can have a body length of up to 3.9 in, and tail length...
