Title: War And Peace: Conflict And Cooperation In An Insect Society
Authors: Gadagkar, Raghavendra
Issue Date: Jan-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: Whether it is work distribution, choosing a leader or, for that matter, protecting colonies from foreign attacks, insect societies hold a mirror to us and make us think and reflect on the way we humans conduct our own affairs. Unknown to many of us, a large number of insect species organize themselves into very sophisticated societies. Their societies parallel and sometimes surpass human societies in their social organization, in their social integration, in communication, in division of labour and most importantly in the way in which they tread a very fine balance between conflict and cooperation.
