16. Why are animals social?

Description

In this episode we sit down (recorded safely in pre-COVID19 times) with Georgia Tech Professor of Biology, Dr. Mike Goodisman to talk about how sociality, the degree to which individuals in an animal population tend to associate in social groups, has evolved, and how it affects evolution. Dr. Goodisman's focus is in social insects, and we dive deep into how insects have evolved complex social structures and behaviors, we explore the opportunities and perils of generalizing from his work into human social perspectives.
