Alizon, Samuel Alcock, John 2017-02-17T13:18:32Z Abe, Jun eng Andre, Jean-Baptiste Inclusive fitness theory and eusociality Arising from M. A. Nowak, C. E. Tarnita & E. O. Wilson 466, 1057-1062 (2010); Nowak et al. reply. Nowak et al. argue that inclusive fitness theory has been of little value in explaining the natural world, and that it has led to negligible progress in explaining the evolution of eusociality. However, we believe that their arguments are based upon a misunderstanding of evolutionary theory and a misrepresentation of the empirical literature. We will focus our comments on three general issues. Balloux, Francois Alpedrinha, Joao A. C. Andersson, Malte Abbot, Patrick
