Pheromones and Kin Selection

Making progress in genetic kin recognition among vertebrates

Journal of Biology 2010, 9:13doi:10.1186/jbiol221
Published: 17 February 2010

A recent study in BMC Evolutionary Biology has shown that genetically similar individual ring-tailed lemurs are also more similar in their scent composition, suggesting a possible mechanism of kin recognition. Theoretical and experimental studies reveal challenges ahead in achieving a true systems-level understanding of this process and its outcomes.
